Sunscreen Scare

Shayna Pickle says her five-year-old son got badly burned this month after wearing Banana Boat sunscreen.
The Bracebridge, Ont., woman blames the sunscreen, so she posted photos on Facebook along with a warning about the brand. 
Health Canada says that since May 11, it has received 187 complaints about Banana Boat sunscreen products. Ninety-six of the cases detail burns or blister-related reactions, and more than half of the alleged victims in those cases were children or adolescents.
Banana Boat Canada says rigorous testing of its sunscreen has shown that it’s safe and can’t cause chemical burns.
Health Canada says it has reviewed Banana Boat’s test results and found no concerns. The agency has also conducted its own tests on the sunscreen and expects to have the results in the coming weeks.
