NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Banana Boat is recalling a spray-on sunscreen after reports of about half a dozen people have caught on fire after applying it.
One of those victims was Chesapeake's Mary Shoulders , who suffered third degree burns when she applied the sunscreen, waited the prescribed amount of time then stepped outside to weld.
10 On Your Side is in the process of testing Banana Boat and other spray sunscreen products.
WAVY.com emailed Banana Boat earlier this week with test results thus far, and the company announced the recalls Friday.
They say the problem appears to be with the spray valve over applying the product, not drying completely or as quickly as one may expect.

A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
