If you use Brut or Sure brand deodorants, listen up. Earlier this week, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall for certain Brut and Sure deodorants. It turns out, the agency is concerned that the two deodorants may contain a cancer-causing chemical, specifically benzene. At the moment, four types of Brut deodorant and two types of Sure antiperspirant sprays are included in the recall. 

The specific deodorants impacted by the recall include the following

Brut Classic Antiperspirant Aerosol, 4oz

  • 00827755070085

Brut Classic Antiperspirant Aerosol, 6oz

  • 00827755070108
