FDA warns of flammable sunscreen accidents on July 4
Do your July 4 plans involve a little fun in the sun?
Then the FDA has a warning for you.
Experts said you should make sure your sunscreen in non-flammable.
The agency said they have had a handful of reports of serious burns after people put on sunscreen near an open flame.
In some cases, the users had already applied the sunscreen, suggesting a possibility you could catch fire even if you think your sunblock is already dry.
They said everything from lighting a cigarette to standing too close to a lit candle, even approaching a grill could be to blame for the injuries.
Avoid the risks by using a non-flammable sunscreen that does not contain alcohol.
