Thousands of Unilever hair products have been recalled across Canada due to the detection of benzene, a cancer-causing chemical.

Health Canada issued the recall Tuesday for more than 1.5 million dry shampoo products manufactured by Dove, Bed Head and Tresemmé that were sold in the country between January 2020 and October 2022.

As of Oct. 7, no incidents or injuries had been reported from the affected products, which are packaged in aerosol cans, according to the agency.
