It is believed that this issue is associated with the product delivery system, specifically the size of the spray valve opening on the affected products. The spray valve opening dispenses more than is typical in the industry for continuous sun care sprays. As a result, the product is taking longer to dry on the skin than is typical with other continuous sprays.
There have been four reports of adverse events involving burns associated with the use of the Banana Boat SPORT Ultramist SPF 30 and 50 products in the US, and one event in Canada.
I’ve been writing about recalls for years. They never cease to amaze me.
