Old Spice, Secret Antiperspirants Recalled Due to Benzene

Several Old Spice and Secret aerosol spray antiperspirants and hygiene products have been voluntarily recalled in the United States due to the presence of the cancer-causing chemical benzene, Procter & Gamble says.

Benzene exposure can occur by inhalation, orally and through the skin. It can lead to cancers including leukemia and blood cancer of the bone marrow, as well as potentially life-threatening blood disorders.

Procter & Gamble said that it has not received any reports of harm from the recalled products, which were distributed across the country.
