Neutrogena Sunscreen Spray Recall
Giant corporate chains such as CVS Health, Walgreens, and Walmart have begun pulling Johnson and Johnson’s sunscreen products off their shelves. The product removal was initiated after J&J announced that it detected a cancer-causing chemical in some test samples. Johnson and Johnson issued a voluntary recall of five Neutrogena and Aveeno brand aerosol sunscreens and advised consumers to cease using the product after low levels of benzene were found in some sprays.
The recall comes two months after online pharmacy Valisure filed a petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), claiming to have found higher levels of benzene than recommended in over a dozen products that provide protection or relief against sunburns. This petition named more products than just the five that J&J recalled.
