US FDA investigating carcinogen found in recalled Johnson & Johnson's sunscreen products



The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on สล็อต168 it is investigating the root cause of a cancer-causing chemical found in some of Johnson & Johnson's recalled sunscreen products.


The drugmaker on Wednesday voluntarily recalled five Neutrogena and Aveeno brand aerosol sunscreens and advised consumers to stop using the products and discard them after internal testing found low levels of benzene in some sprays.


Johnson & Johnson recalled aerosol sunscreens are Neutrogena Beach Defense, Neutrogena Cool Dry Sport, Neutrogena Invisible Daily defense, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer and Aveeno Protect + Refresh.


The US FDA has advised parents to continue to use broad spectrum sunscreens with SPF 15 or higher in conjunction with other sun protective measures.


Pharmacy chains CVS Health, Walgreens Boots Alliance and retailer Walmart began pulling Johnson & Johnson's sunscreen products off their shelves.


The recall comes two months after online pharmacy Valisure filed a petition with the US FDA, saying it had found levels of benzene that were higher than recommended in over a dozen products that provide protection or relief against sunburns, including sprays and lotions.


Walmart said on Thursday it had started removing the affected products and customers who had bought the items could return them for a refund. CVS and Walgreens said they were complying with the recall.


CVS added that it had also halted sales of two of its sunburn healing products, which were in Valisure's petition. Other products found to have benzene above the recommended levels were from privately held Fruit of the Earth and Sunbum.


The two companies did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment.
