Edgewell Personal Care Company (NYSE: EPC) today issued a voluntary nationwide recall of three batches of Banana Boat Hair & Scalp Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 to the consumer level as outlined in the list below. An internal review found that some samples of the product contained trace... levels of benzene. While benzene is not an ingredient in any Banana Boat products, the review showed that unexpected levels of benzene came from the propellant that sprays the product out of the can. To date, Edgewell has not received any adverse events related to this recall. The products were distributed nationwide in the United States through various retailers and online. Edgewell has notified its retailers to remove any remaining recalled product from shelves.
Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen. Exposure to benzene can occur by inhalation, orally, and through the skin and it potentially can result in cancers including leukemia and blood cancer of the bone marrow and blood disorders which can be life threatening. Benzene is ubiquitous in the environment. Humans around the world have daily exposures to it indoors and outdoors from multiple sources. Daily exposure to benzene in the recalled products would not be expected to cause adverse health consequences according to an independent health assessment using established exposure modeling guidelines.
Importantly, no other batches of Hair & Scalp (either before or after these batch codes) and no other Banana Boat products are in the scope of this recall and may continue to be used by consumers safely and as intended.

Consumers should stop using the affected product immediately and appropriately discard.

I had a problem with an employee at the self checkout, Fry's Marketplace, 4440 E Main St, Mesa, AZ 85205, United States

I want to file a complaint with the management about an employee at Fry's that caused me to experience a great deal of stress last evening. I ran into a problem with an employee at the self checkout last evening at Fry's on Greenfield Rd. and Main... St. in Mesa, Arizona. I was there at around 9:30PM and picked up three bushels of bananas, a bag of oranges and a bag of avocados. I am profoundly deaf and was wearing my mask at that time. That employee, a young female, approached me, even if I didn't ask for help at all. I used my hand motion to keep her at a distance from me. I am already deeply upset and stressed!
I bought a 4 pack of their Bakery Banana Nut Muffins. I've bought them before, so I didn't have any concerns. On opening my first one, the paper wrapper looked like it had worms on the bottom of it. I'd never seen that before, so I checked... the bottom of the muffin, and that had some too. I've thrown the rest away. As I said, I've bought these often and they've never had this, so this isn't normal. At this same location, I had gotten a pack of mini brownies in the flat plastic container and there were plastic pieces baked into the brownies. Had to throw those out too, after there were at least 5 with plastic chips in them. Clearly quality control has gone way down here.
My dad, a super, is quarantined; cant work bc he has COVID-19 symptoms; no test results yet. The building residents check on him daily; they ordered cleaning supplies/disinfected the lobby on their own. One even baked us banana bread. This is how you treat essential workers!!
