Coppertone has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit that claimed the company’s sunscreen products contained benzene — a human carcinogen. Under the terms of the settlement, Coppertone will award $2.3 million to customers who submit a valid claim form. No proof of purchase is required to make a claim, and claims can be submitted online or by mail.

What is Benzene?

Benzene is a colorless, flammable liquid with a sweet odor. It is derived from coal and is used as a solvent in the petrochemical industry. Benzene is also a key ingredient in gasoline and is released into the air during car exhaust. Despite its widespread use, benzene is classified as a carcinogen by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency. This means that it has been linked to an increased risk of cancer, particularly leukemia. Long-term exposure to benzene can also cause damage to the immune system, nervous system, and bone marrow. Inhaling high levels of benzene can lead to drowsiness, dizziness, and death. For these reasons, it is important to be aware of the dangers of this chemical and take steps to avoid exposure.

The deadline to submit a claim is November 7 2022. If you have purchased any Coppertone sunscreen products in the past, be sure to check if you are eligible for a refund. This is a great opportunity to get some money back from a company that has been accused of putting its customers at risk.
