CONSUMER ALERT: Old Spice and Secret Products Recalled for Excessive Levels of Known Carcinogen

December 16, 2021 GMT

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Schubert Jonckheer & Kolbe LLP today launched an investigation into the recent recall of aerosol spray antiperspirants and hygiene products made by The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG).

The Procter & Gamble Company manufactures, distributes, and sells antiperspirants, deodorants, and body sprays under several brands names, including Old Spice and Secret. On November 3, 2021, pharmaceutical testing laboratory Valisure filed a Citizen Petition requesting the Food and Drug Administration initiate a recall of certain Procter & Gamble products due to the presence of dangerous levels of benzene.

Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen. Exposure to benzene can result in cancers including leukemia and blood cancer of the bone marrow, and also blood disorders which can be life-threatening.

On November 23, 2021, the Food and Drug Administration announced that Procter & Gamble is voluntarily recalling all lots with expiry through September 2023 of specific Old Spice and Secret products sold in the United States due to the high levels of benzene detected.
