Spray-on sunscreen can be a serious burn hazard

The AP (10/20) reported that the manufacturer of “Banana Boat sunscreen is recalling some of its spray-on products after reports that a handful of people have caught on fire after applying the lotion and coming in contact with an open flame.”   The dangerous products being recalled include UltraMist Sport, UltraMist Ultra Defense and UltraMist Kids.

If you own such products, contact the phone number found on these products for instructions on how to proceed.  DO NOT continue to use these products.  Dangers can arise when using these products near ignition sources such as barbecue grills, cigarette lighters, camp fires or any open flame.  Contact a personal injury lawyer to find out what your rights are if you have been harmed by such a dangerous and defective product.
