CVS Takes Two Products Off It’s Shelves After Johnson & Johnson Recall

CVS Health, a US retailer with 10,000 outlets, is stopping the sale of two of its own ‘after sun’ products.

The sales of After Sun Aloe Vera and CVS Health After Sun Aloe Vera Spray are being halted as a precaution.

This comes directly after Johnson & Johnson recalled five sunscreen products after some samples were found to contain low levels of benzene.

Benzene is a known carcinogen, which has recently been found in a number of sunscreens and after sun products, according to tests performed by online pharmacy and lab Valisure.

The affected Johnson & Johnson products, packaged in aerosol cans, are Aveeno Protect + Refresh aerosol sunscreen, and four Neutrogena sunscreen versions: Beach Defense aerosol sunscreen, CoolDry Sport aerosol sunscreen, Invisible Daily Defense aerosol sunscreen and UltraSheer aerosol sunscreen.

The recall includes all can sizes and all levels of sun protection factor, or SPF.
