Energizer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ENR) announced on October 19, 2012, it is initiating a market withdrawal of the continuous spray Banana Boat sun care products. The recall is due to a potential risk of product igniting on the skin if contact is made with source of ignition before the product is completely dry.

Energizer is voluntarily removing these products from retail outlets because of this potential safety concern. These over- the – counter products were distributed nationwide to wholesalers and retailers from January 2010 through September 30, 2012.  Energizer believes that this issue is associated with the product delivery system, specifically the size of the spray valve opening on the affected products. The spray valve opening on the affected products dispenses more than is typical in the industry for continuous sun care sprays. As a result, the product is taking longer to dry on the skin than is typical with other continuous sprays. 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 following products have been recalled:
