Unilever issues recall of Suave aerosol antiperspirants
Unilever is voluntarily recalling two Suave 24-Hour Protection Aerosol Antiperspirants due to elevated levels of benzene in some product samples.
Benzene is not an ingredient in any of the recalled products. The benzene came from the propellant that sprays the product out of the can.
Unilever is recalling all lots of the products with an expiration date through September 2023.

Benzene is classified as a human carcinogen.
The Suave 24-Hour Protection Aerosol Antiperspirant product line was discontinued in October 2021 and the affected products were in limited distribution at U.S. retail stores and online.
Unilever will offer reimbursement for consumers who have purchased products impacted by this recall.
