After there have been reports of people catching on fire after applying UltraMist units, the makers of Banana Boat have decided to recall 500 thousand bottles.
Energizer Holdings is pulling 23 varieties of the sunscreen off of store shelves. A handful of people have applied the spray-on sunscreen and come into contact with an open flame, causing the lotion to ignite.
The problem is caused by the spray valve, which over applies the lotion. It takes longer to dry, which raises the risk of catching on fire.
Consumers who have purchased the items are urged to not use them. More information can be given by calling the manufacturer at 1-800-SAFESUN.
