Reason/Issue Sun Bum are informing of benzene contamination in one of the raw materials has led to low level contamination of some sunscreen finished goods. Two lot numbers 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 the Baby Bum products. The two lot numbers have been distributed to pharmacies and retailers since 1 August 2021.
