40 Sunscreen Brands Recalled Due To Cancer Risk

San Antonio, Texas based law firm Carabin Shaw P.C. is reaching out to the wider community to raise awareness about the fact that 40 sunscreen brands have been recalled due to them containing benzene, an ingredient which is linked to an increased cancer risk. The law firm was founded nearly 30 years ago to fight for the rights of victims of auto accidents, trucking accidents, 18- wheeler accidents, motorcycle accidents, worksite accidents and other losses. More information about the law firm can be found at their website.

The firm explains that sunscreen products have been pulled from shelves across the country after they were found to contain significant amounts of benzene, a known carcinogen. Scientific experts say any benzene exposure poses a health risk, as it has been linked to increased cancer risk since and had five times higher than normal risk of leukemia.

"There's no such thing as a safe level of exposure, and that's especially true for children," said Philip Landrigan, director of the Global Public Health Program and Global Pollution Observatory at Boston College.

Bloomberg News reported that David Light, founder of pharmaceutical testing company Valisure, thinks the problem is likely rooted in specific batches, not brands. Benzene is often used as an industrial solvent, so it's possible the sunscreen makers were unknowingly using contaminated solvents in some of their products. "In this case it really seems to be a manufacturing contaminant problem, not an inherent problem with sunscreen," Light said. "People should still continue to use sunscreen, I think, is an important message to get across."

The Food and Drug Administration was asked to recall 40 batches from 10 different brands including Neutrogena, Banana Boat and CVS Health. The full list of recalled products can be found at the CBS news website.
