Lawyers Say More Sunscreen Recalls—and Lawsuits—Are on the Horizon

Johnson & Johnson's recall of sunscreens containing dangerous levels of benzene only scratches the surface, according to lawyers as they prepare for more lawsuits and recalls.

On July 14, Johnson & Johnson announced that it was voluntarily recalling five product lines, all of the Aveeno and Neutrogena branded aerosol sunscreen sprays, citing internal tests that identified low levels of benzene, a known carcinogen, in some samples. At least nine lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson and other sunscreen manufacturers, including the makers of the popular Banana Boat product.
