As New England gets hit with its first true heatwave of 2024, thousands of people plan to skip out on work so they can take their families to the beach.

As a responsible parent, you always prepare by packing appropriately.  You make sure that you bring appropriate beachwear, extra towels, plenty of water, snacks, and sunscreen.

Yes, you make sure the whole family is covered in sunscreen before you let them out of the car.  And out of an abundance of caution, you re-apply sunscreen every hour.

Before you pack that beach bag, you may want to doublecheck that sunscreen, though.

According to an article from USA Today, a popular brand of sunscreen has just been recalled.

The article explains that Suntegrity Skincare worked with the Food & Drug Administration to voluntarily recall some of their sunscreen.  The concern lies with a higher-than-acceptable microbiological mold count level in the sunscreen.

If the sunscreen contains a high enough level of mold, it could cause rashes, eye irritation, or fungal skin infections when used on an open cut or sunburned skin.

The sunscreen in question is from Lot 115BU of Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation.

The article explains that:

the lot number could be located at the top in the back of the orange tube where the 2oz product was sealed

Other lots that have been recently recalled include 107IV, 109NU, 117BU, 13SA, 114SA, 106BR, and 101MO.

If you purchased any of the recalled products, you are entitled to a refund.  If you bought it online, you should email the company from which you purchased it.  If the product was bought in a store, you should contact Suntegrity for an exchange or store credit from the retailer.
