Westport, Connecticut, TCP HOT Acquisition LLC dba HRB Brands is voluntarily recalling all lot numbers with expiration dates on or before August 2023 of the Sure and Brut Aerosol Sprays listed in the table below to the consumer level due to the presence of benzene. While benzene is not an ingredient in any of the recalled products, a review showed that unexpected levels of benzene came from the propellant that sprays the product out of the can. These products were owned and distributed by Helen of Troy Limited prior to June 7, 2021.
