The TGA has warned consumers not to spray the aerosol product onto their face.
“The directions for use on the sunscreen are not clear, particularly about use on the face,” the TGA said.
“If you spray the sunscreen mist directly onto your face this may cause accidental inhalation, local irritation of nose, mouth, and throat, as well as coughing and sneezing.”
The product’s directions for use have been updated.
Consumers have been urged to contact Bondi Sands’ customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
