Sprayable sunscreen could be harmful to children

Posted: Updated:

There are new concerns about the popular spray-on sunscreens, which are often an alternative to lotion types for many parents.

Health officials are reviewing the products after reports that the chemicals in them could be dangerous to children.

The FDA is taking a closer look at the risks, and while they do, Consumer Reports has removed all sprayable sunscreens from its recommendation list.

Doctors said if you are going to use them, it's important to make sure your children don't inhale any of the chemicals while it is being applied.
