Sunscreen recall: Banana Boat spray-ons can catch on fire

Energizer Holdings, the maker of Banana Boat sunscreen, is recalling about 500,000 defective product bottles of spray on lotion after reports surfaces that a handful of people have actually CAUGHT ON FIRE after applying the product and coming in contact with an open flame.

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.
