Reason/Issue Bondi Sands are informing of benzene contamination in one of the raw materials that has led to low level contamination of some sunscreen finished goods. Three batches containing the contaminated material had benzene above the acceptable limit.

Benzene is a Class 1 residual solvent, which should not be employed in the manufacture of drug substances, excipients, and drug products because of its unacceptable toxicity (it is a recognised carcinogen).

This action does not affect any other batches of Bondi Sands sunscreen.
