What's This Recall About?

Unilever is a multinational producer of famous product lines that include Dove, Suave, Tresemme, TIGI - Rockaholic and Bedhead. Unilever has decided to voluntarily recall some of their dry shampoo aerosol cans that were produced prior to October 2021. They have also established a website that seeks to inform people and gather information to send checks or coupons to compensate consumers who may have purchased such products. Based on an independent investigation, an ingredient that was contained in these products is known to potentially cause harm to consumers that use it daily.

The ingredient under evaluation is benzene, which is a known carcinogen, and was also the center of a previous recall and class action settlement with Coppertone aerosol sun sprays. Unilever is paying checks, or issuing recalls for those who claim one product purchase without proof of purchase. If you claim more than one product, you will need to provide evidence of purchase. Benzene is known to be a cancer causing agent that may cause diseases such as Leukemia and bone marrow failure which can result in anemia according to the American Cancer Society.
