Sure and Brut recall aerosol cans
Sure and Brut have recalled antiperspirants and deodorants in aerosol cans due to benzene content.
Westport, Connecticut, TCP HOT Acquisition LLC dba HRB Brands is voluntarily recalling all lot numbers with expiration dates on or before August 2023 of the Sure and Brut Aerosol Sprays listed below due to the consumer level due to the presence of benzene.
While benzene is not an ingredient in any of the recalled products, a review by the FDA showed that unexpected levels of benzene came from the propellant that sprays the product out of the can.
These products were owned and distributed by Helen of Troy Limited prior to June 7, 2021.
- Brut Classic Antiperspirant Aerosol in 4-ounce an 6-ounce cans.
- Brut Classic Deodorant Aerosol in 10-ounce and 154-gram (in Canada) cans
- Sure Regular Antiperspirant in 6-ounce cans.
- Sure Unscented Antiperspirant in 6-ounce cans.
The voluntarily recalled products are packaged in aerosol cans and are used as deodorants to prevent or mask body odour or antiperspirants to reduce sweating.
The products were distributed nationally in the United States, except for Brut Aerosol Deodorant, 154g, which was distributed in Canada.
Consumers should stop using the recalled products if the expiration date is on or before August 2023 and dispose of them appropriately, according to the FDA.
