UltraMist Sunscreen Recall After It Went Up in Flames…

Energizer holdings, which is the maker of Banana Boat Sunscreen, is recalling 23 varieties, which is about a half-million bottles, of UltraMist Sunscreen because it caught on fire after applying the product and coming into contact with an open flame.

There were four reports of people in the United States and  one report of a person in Canada suffering from sunscreen-related burns this past year.  All cases resulted in second and third degree burns.

The problem seems to be caused by the UltraMist spray valve, which allows a person to over apply the product onto their skin.  This makes the lotion take longer to dry, which raises the flammability risk. So, if a person comes in contact with a flame, there is potential for the product to ignite.
