Sunscreen Maker Promises Investigation After Stow Man Catches Fire
About two weeks ago, Brett Sigworth stepped in front of a barbecue grill shortly after applying the aerosol spray-on sunscreen, and his body was immediately engulfed in flames.
Sigworth suffered second-degree burns on his chest, ear and back.
Banana Boat has responded to an inquiry by WBZ-TV by expressing concern for Sigworth and vowing to find out exactly what happened.
“We were concerned to hear about Brett’s experience,” the company said in the statement. “At Banana Boat, we take these matters very seriously and will begin a prompt investigation as we continue to strive to deliver products of the highest quality to our consumers.”
