Upside: Banana Boat sunscreen will help you achieve a deep brown color.
Downside: Banana Boat sunscreen might make you catch fire.
The “catch fire” part requires contact with an open flame. Still. It’s not a desirable outcome when one uses sunscreen.
More from Strollerderby:
In the past year, five people have been burned after using Banana Boat. According to the company, the problem is believed to stem from the spray valve, which somehow results in the lotion taking longer to dry, thereby increasing the risk of flammability.
“If a consumer comes into contact with a flame or spark prior to complete drying of the product on the skin, there is a potential for the product to ignite,” the company said in a statement.
So it’s not quite Spontaneous Human Combustion. But check the recall anyway.
