FDA Warns of Sunscreen Spray’s Flammability Risk

 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warns the public about certain sunscreen sprays that may catch fire when too close to an open flame. The agency stated that there has already been 5 incidents wherein people wearing sunscreen sprays near open flame sources suffered significant burns that required medical attention. The products involved in these incidents were recalled from the market and are no longer allowed to be sold to the consumers. FDA said that many other sunscreen sprays out there contain flammable ingredients such as alcohol. Dr. Narayan Nair, a lead medical officer at the FDA, advises the public to stay away from open flame, sparks or an ignition source after applying products that were labeled flammable by FDA.
