Popular sunscreen brand recalled due to “cancer risk”

Published

on

A popular brand of sunscreen is being recalled in Australia after traces of the chemical “benzene” were found in some batches.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration has issued the alert for the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray SPF 50+ aerosol sunscreen.

The TGA says batches with an expiry date of August 30, 2023, or earlier should not be used due to possible health risks linked to benzene.

Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen, a substance that could potentially cause cancer

Consumers are being urged that they should discard the products and seek a refund via the Neutrogena website.

All unsold products will be removed from the market.

Johnson & Johnson product testing detected benzene at concentrations in some batches supplied in Australia.
