Timeline of Consumer Product Recalls Due to Benzene

In late 2020, Valisure expanded its testing capabilities to include analysis for benzene and also broadened the type of products it was analyzing in its pharmacy and pharmacy partners, to include over-the-counter items and consumer healthcare products. In 2021, Valisure sold its pharmacy subsidiary to a pharmacy chain and continued to work with pharmacies and other stakeholders throughout the healthcare industry to incorporate the benefits of independent quality assurance.

Valisure’s November 1, 2022, Citizen Petition on benzene contamination in dry shampoo builds upon the growing list of the company’s detection of benzene in consumer products, including Valisure’s March 24, 2021, Citizen Petition on benzene contamination in hand sanitizer, its May 24, 2021, Citizen Petition on benzene contamination in sunscreens, its November 4th, 2021 Citizen Petition on benzene contamination in body sprays, and the recent recall of contaminated hand sanitizers, sunscreens, body sprays, and other consumer products due to the presence of benzene. These alarming developments strongly underscore the necessity to better regulate benzene and its apparent prevalence in the drug and consumer product supply chains.
