Johnson & Johnson (J&J) announced the recall of five of its sunscreen products Wednesday after a cancer-causing chemical was found in some of the samples.
Low levels of benzene, a carcinogen, were identified in the company‘s following five aerosol sunscreens: NEUTROGENA Beach Defense, NEUTROGENA Cool Dry Sport, NEUTROGENA Invisible Daily, NEUTROGENA Ultra Sheer and AVEENO Protect +, the company said in the Wednesday statement.
All lots of the affected sunscreens are being voluntarily pulled “out of an abundance of caution,” the statement reads.
Americans should continue to use other broad-spectrum sunscreens with SPF 15 or higher in conjunction with other sun protective measures. Sunscreens come in many forms including sprays, creams, lotions, sticks, gels, oils, ointments, butters and pastes. https://t.co/s0oG4yL3jy
