The manufacturer of Banana Boat sunscreen issued a voluntary recall on Friday of nearly half a million sunscreen products after five reports of people catching fire.
The voluntary recall will pull 23 different varieties of UltraMist sunscreen off store shelves that run the risk of catching fire if exposed to open flames after applying, according to the manufacturer, Energizer Holdings Inc.
"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," Energizer's press release said.
The company believes the issue is with the spray valve, which is larger than the average spray sunscreen bottle. Therefore, the aerosol bottle dispenses more sunscreen and takes the product longer to dry.
According to the company press release, in the last year there have been four reports in the US and one in Canada of people suffering burns after using the product.
One reported case was last June, when a Massachusetts man caught fire after putting on the company's sunscreen and tried to grill outside, reported New York Daily News.
The company notified the FDA of the recall. For more information about the recall, consumers can call 1-800-SAFESUN.
