OTTAWA – The makers of a popular line of sunscreen products is expanding its recall of continuous spray products because they pose a fire risk.

Health Canada said consumers should check Banana Boat sunscreen products in their travel kits and at cottages to see if they are subject to the recall.

The government agency said the products can ignite on the skin if a user is exposed to an open flame or spark before the sunscreen has dried.

There have been five reports of such events, one in Canada and four in the United States.

Health Canada is also warning that similar products from other manufacturers may also pose a risk.

The department said people should not apply continuous spray sun care products near open flames or sparks, or while smoking.
