Procter & Gamble has recalled over 30 aerosol spray hair care products that may contain benzene, which is a cancer-causing agent.
The recall will affect brands such as Pantene, Herbal Essences, Hair Food, Old Spice, and Aussie products. It also includes dry shampoos and conditioners (CNN Business).
According to a statement released Friday by Procter & Gamble, the amount of benzene in the products is not enough to cause significant health issues, and that the recall is out of “an abundance of caution.” Anyone who has purchased these products has been advised to throw them out. Consumers are eligible for a full refund.
The statement also said that no other products from these brands are in the “scope of this recall and such other products may continue to be used as intended, including those aerosol dry shampoo products with production code ranges different from those specifically communicated.”
This is the second recall issued by Procter & Gamble within the past month which warned of benzene in aerosol deodorants and sprays.
The Food and Drug Administration has been alerted of this recall. Additionally, the full list of recalled products is available on Procter & Gamble’s website. Product codes have also been included in the list.
