READ THE LABEL on Jun 09, 2012 @ 11:45 am

For one thing, I'm happy that this person is ok.

Secondly, people (especially adults) need to read the labels. The sunscreen container does say that it can be flammable, and to keep away from high heat - as I have the same product here at home, and use it on a daily basis during the summer.

It's unfortunate that this happened, as he was injured - but it could have been avoided.

To make my long story short, read the label.

Great balls of fire.... on Jun 09, 2012 @ 09:24 pm

Gee-su what the heck is going on that people are catching fire? Like @katelynrose1984 said, the label will often warn of things like this...but I guess we all just assume this will never ever happen.

Banana Boat sales will most likely suffer.....which is tragic, but maybe this will make people more aware.
