These Neutrogena Sunscreens Have Been Recalled In Canada & You Should Stop ...

Neutrogena issued a voluntary sunscreen recall on July 14, 2021, for two of its aerosol products.

The recalled products include NEUTROGENA® Ultra Sheer Body Mist sunscreen spray (SPF 30, 45, 60) and NEUTROGENA® Beach Defense (SPF 60) sunscreen spray. Apparently, these sunscreens were sold across Canada.

The recall notice states that "internal testing identified low levels of benzene in some samples of these aerosol sunscreen products." Benzene is a human carcinogen and has the potential to cause cancer "depending on the level and extent of exposure."

The notice claims that the levels of benzene found in the products likely wouldn't be enough to cause adverse health reactions.

The impacted Neutrogena products are part of a larger recall by Johnson & Johnson, which includes Aveeno products as well, but these are only being recalled in the U.S.

Neutrogena advises Canadians to stop using these sunscreens immediately and throw them away.
