US – Westport, Connecticut, TCP HOT Acquisition LLC dba HRB Brands is voluntarily recalling a product they manufacture with lot numbers with expiration dates on or before August 2023 of their product because it contains a chemical that’s a carcinogen.
Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen. Exposure to benzene can occur by inhalation, orally, and through the skin and it can result in cancers including leukemia and blood cancer of the bone marrow and blood disorders which can be life-threatening.
While benzene is not an ingredient in any of the recalled products, our review showed that unexpected levels of benzene came from the propellant that sprays the product out of the can.
