Coppertone said in a press release that the company is issuing the voluntary recall "out of an abundance of caution" and that it "has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall."
The company noted that benzene is a human carcinogen and that exposure at certain levels could "result in an increased risk of cancers including leukemia, and blood cancer of the bone marrow and other blood disorders which can be life-threatening."
"Daily exposure to benzene at the levels detected in these affected Coppertone aerosol sunscreen spray products would not be expected to cause adverse health consequences based on generally accepted exposure modeling by numerous regulatory agencies," the firm added.
Consumers may call 1-888-921-1537 with questions regarding the recall and may request a product refund here.
