Why was it recalled and what is benzene?
Benzene is a carcinogen. While a recall message issued by the FDA, written by owner Brut and Sure Helen of Troy Limited, says, “Benzene is common in the environment. People all over the world are exposed to it daily indoors and outdoors from a variety of sources, ”it also says,“ our review found that unexpected benzene levels came from the fuel that sprays the product from the can. “
Getting benzene in the body can lead to leukemia, blood cancer and diseases that can be fatal.
What to do now?
To request a refund, contact Helen of Troy Limited.
