Bayer lotrimin® and tinactin® lawsuits

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported that Bayer initiated a recall of its Lotrimin® AF and Tinactin® Over-the-Counter (OTC) antifungal spray products. Bayer’s Lotrimin® and Tinactin® products are being recalled due to the presence of benzene. Benzene is a known human carcinogen and is highly absorbable through human skin.

Bayer is recalling Lotrimin® and Tinactin® spray products with lot numbers starting with CV, T.N., or NAA, and distributed from September 2018 until September 2021. According to Bayer Consumer Health products, benzene is not an ingredient in their products.

According to the recall announcement, exposure to benzene can happen when consumed, inhaled, and through absorption through the skin. The level of exposure and duration can increase the risk of cancer, including blood cancer, leukemia, and life-threatening bone marrow and blood disorders. Bayer states that there have been no reports of adverse events concerning the recalled products.

The following Lotrimin® and Tinactin® spray products were sold individually or in combination packs and a part of the recall:

  • Lotrimin Anti-Fungal (A.F.) Athlete’s Foot Deodorant Powder Spray
  • Lotrimin Anti-Fungal (A.F.) Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray
  • Lotrimin AF Athlete’s Foot Liquid Spray
  • Lotrimin AF Athlete’s Foot Daily Prevention Deodorant Powder Spray
  • Lotrimin Anti-Fungal Jock Itch (AFJI) Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray
  • Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Deodorant Powder Spray
  • Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Liquid Spray
  • Tinactin Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray
  • Tinactin Jock Itch (J.I.) Powder Spray

According to the recall announcement, there are no recalls affecting Lotrimin®/Tinactin® creams, Lotrimin® Ultra, or other Bayer products. All of the recalled products are packaged in aerosol spray cans. All of the recalled products were distributed in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico, through various retail channels.

Bayer reported that the company is notifying its retailers and distributors of the recall and is making plans to handle the processing of the recalled products. Customers can request a refund by visiting Lotrimin.com or Tinactin.com. A photograph of the recalled product is required to receive a refund. After submitting the photo and finishing the refund process, customers are urged to stop using the products and to throw the recalled products in the trash. Consumers should speak with their healthcare provider if they have any concerns, questions, or if they are experiencing problems related to using these aerosol antifungal products.
