(WFXR) — Unilever United States — the company that makes Suave products — is recalling two of its products because of high levels of benzene.
Two Suave 24-Hour Protection Aerosol Antiperspirants show to have slightly elevated levels of benzene that came from the propellant that sprays the product out of the can.
Benzene is a human carcinogen and exposure — whether through inhalation, orally, or on the skin — can cause cancers like leukemia, blood cancers of the bone marrow, and blood disorders that can be life-threatening.
While the Suave 24-Hour Protection Aerosol Antiperspirant product was discontinued in October 2021, there was a limited distribution at retail stores and online. Stores have been told to remove the products from shelves. People who purchased this product will be reimbursed by Unilever.
Below is a list of the products on the recall list:
|Suave 24-Hour Protection Aerosol Antiperspirant Powder||4 oz.;|
|079400785503||Suave 24-Hour Protection Aerosol Antiperspirant Fresh||6 oz.|
Those who have questions can contact Unilver by calling 866-204-9756 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. or visit the Sauve Recall website.
