Makers of product think the problem is caused by UltraMist’s spray valve, which is over applying the product. As a result the lotion is taking longer to dry thereby raising the flammability risk, says the company responsible for the Banana Boat Sunscreen Recall.
“If a consumer comes into contact with a flame or spark prior to complete drying of the product on the skin, there is a potential for the product to ignite.” the company said.
Of the several reported cases, one involved a man standing near a barbecue grill, the other a woman working with welding equipment. Both cases resulted in second and third degree burns.
