SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Procter & Gamble issued a recall for specific Old Spice and Secret brand aerosol spray products that may contain benzene, a carcinogen that can cause serious cancers.

“Exposure to benzene can occur by inhalation, orally, and through the skin and it can result in cancers, including leukemia and blood cancer of the bone marrow and blood disorders which can be life-threatening,” according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

P&G said it has not received any reports of any harm caused by these products and that the voluntary recall is out of an abundance of caution.

“Daily exposure to benzene in the recalled products at the levels detected in our testing would not be expected to cause adverse health consequences,” the company said.

The following products with expiry through September 2023 have been recalled, according to the FDA:
