Sunscreen Maker Promises Investigation After Stow Man Catches Fire

BOSTON (CBS) – Sunscreen maker Banana Boat is vowing an investigation into an incident where a Stow man says he was nearly killed after applying their product.

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.”

  1. It merely requires somewhat forethought and planning, a couple of materials, plants
    or seeds, grime (or growing medium), fertilizer, solar, water and containers to
    plant in. Creating an organic roof garden is a good way to contribute to biodiversity by doing all of your part to preserve indigenous vegetation and species.

  2. First take away all gear and rinse out the container with Fishermans Soap and heat water.

  3. Dear LeanMan, It took me a a while to read via all the
    advise, suggestions & comments.
