SHELTON, Connecticut — Edgewell Personal Care Company, owner of Banana Boat sunscreen, has issued a voluntary nationwide recall for three batches of its Banana Boat Hair & Scalp Sunscreen Spray SPF 30.

The product’s lot code can be found on the bottom of the can.

The recall does not affect other batches of Hair & Scalp, nor other Banana Boat products.

Recalling Hair & Scalp

Edgewell has notified retailers to remove the product from shelves. In addition to this, Banana Boat will offer reimbursement to those who have purchased Hair & Scalp.

The company advises consumers to stop using the affected product and immediately discard it.
