Products That Contain Benzene

In 2021, the lab Valisure released their findings of the highly carcinogenic chemical benzene in hundreds of popular personal care items in the U.S., prompting several big brands to recall dozens of products voluntarily. However, even though Valisure was able to uncover hundreds of products contaminated with the harmful carcinogen, it makes you wonder why an ingredient that was banned nearly 45 years ago in the United States is now being found in products once again. 

At Morgan & Morgan, we believe major corporations should be held liable for their negligent actions. If you believe you have been exposed to benzene, we may be able to help you. For more information about your case, don't hesitate to get in touch with us by completing our free, no-obligation case evaluation form today.

  • What Is Benzene?

    Benzene is a colorless liquid that is highly flammable with a sweet odor. It evaporates into the air very quickly and dissolves slightly in water. It is produced by both natural and artificial processes and is a natural component of crude oil, which is the primary source of benzene produced today. Other natural sources of benzene include gas emissions from volcanoes and forest fires. Benzene is primarily used as a solvent in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. 

    While it is a valuable chemical, exposure to this substance can cause severe neurological symptoms as well as create issues in the bone marrow causing anemia, excessive bleeding, and other damages to the immune system. Unfortunately, benzene is also known as a human carcinogen. It has been linked to an increased risk of developing lymphatic and hematopoietic cancers, acute myelogenous leukemia, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

  • What Products Contain Benzene?

    Below is a comprehensive list of some of the most common products containing the harmful chemical:

    • Sunscreens
    • Antiperspirant
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Inks
    • Dry shampoo
    • Tobacco smoke
    • Adhesives and coatings
    • Rubbers

    • Industrial solvents
    • Gasoline and other fuels
    • Glues

    • Detergents
    • Thinners

    If you believe you or someone you know has used any of the products listed above or has been exposed to benzene, immediately contact a medical professional to learn more about your best course of action, then contact an attorney to review your case.

  • What Symptoms Should I Look For?

    You deserve to know the facts when it comes to the danger you and your loved ones are in when exposed to benzene. According to the National Cancer Institute, there is no safe level of exposure to this harmful carcinogen. Exposure to benzene can cause severe illnesses in people who breathe in, consume foods or beverages, or use products that contain high levels of benzene. The following symptoms may develop anywhere from minutes to several hours after exposure:

    • Tremors
    • Drowsiness
    • Convulsions
    • Loss of appetite
    • Unconsciousness
    • Vomiting
    • Dizziness
    • Confusion
    • Pale or red-dotted skin
    • Headaches
    • Stomach irritation
    • Rapid or irregular heartbeat

    Along with the symptoms listed above, direct exposure of benzene to the skin, eyes, or lungs can lead to tissue injury or irritation. In some instances, short-term exposure may even lead to death.
