Banana Boat Sunscreen Withdrawn From Shelves: Fire Risk

Sunscreen is good for you, and not just because your mum told you so. It can help prevent skin cancer! Unless it's one of these just-recalled Banana Boat variants, in which case you might die in flames.

According to a press release from "Energizer Holdings," which apparently owns Banana Boat (who knew!), the defect lies in the fact that certain spray bottles have too big of a nozzle, which dispenses too much sunscreen too fast. This prevents it from drying fast enough, which makes you flammable -- "a potential risk of product igniting on the skin if contact is made with a source of ignition before the product is completely dry."
