Banana Boat sunscreen probed after multiple burn complaints

(MetroNews) A British Columbia mother says her 12-year-old son suffered burn injuries after using a Banana Boat sunscreen product.

Patrizia Fitch, of Victoria, said Tuesday that her son Daniel was left with severe blisters after wearing a Banana Boat sunscreen on a school trip to a beach in the city.

She says he applied the sunscreen four times and the blisters kept getting worse.

Fitch says she’s reported her son’s injuries to Health Canada.

A Health Canada spokeswoman says the number of complaints about the company’s products has shot up to 139 in the past two months.
