Heads up moms!
A Canadian mom has took social media to echoes her grievance, after her 14-month old baby suffered “serious” burn after using a popular sunscreen brand.
According to Rebecca Cannon, her daughter suffered second-degree chemical burns on her face from a popular suncreen.
Mrs. Cannon shared her experience over the internet to urged parents to take care and protect their children.
Also, she hopes to warn other families about the potential dangers of a well-known brand of sunscreen.
On her Facebook post, Cannon explained that she purchased Banana Boat Kids SPF50 to protect her 14-month-old daughter when spending time outdoors.
“As the day went on, she got a little redder and redder and the next morning she woke up and was swollen, she was bright red, there were blisters starting to pop up.” Rebecca continued,
“We immediately took her up to the doctors and found out she has second degree burns.”
Cannon also acknowledged that she should have used sunscreen specifically made for babies, but she figured that using a child-specific block that was advertised as alcohol-free would protect her daughter against the sun.
But the 14-month-old ended up with chemical burns on her face.
Banana Boat responded in a statement by saying, “We are greatly concerned when any person encounters a reaction using out products. We have spoken with the consumer and asked for the product so that our quality assurance team can look into this further. Without examining the product, it is difficult to determine what may have caused the problem as described.”
As of now, there were no report if the company has already reached Cannon over the incident.
“I would have never – in a million years – imagined her to get a burn so severe from sunscreen,” she said.
