After detecting benzene in some of its conditioner and dry shampoo products, Procter & Gamble recalled 32 of these products.

Friday’s voluntary recall includes aerosol products containing Pantene, Herbal Essences and Old Spice.

“To date, the Procter & Gamble Company have not received any adverse events related to the recall and is conducting this recall because of an abundance of caution,” said the company in a statement.

All affected products were packaged in aerosol containers, which are eligible for reimbursement. The company advised that anyone who purchased any of these products should immediately stop using them and toss them out.

Recalled products were sold in U.S. stores and online.

According to the company, recent reports that benzene was detected in aerosols led it to revise its products. P&G stated that the review revealed “unexpected levels of benzene” in the propellant used to spray the product from the can.

Benzene can be found in the air. It is also found in motor fuels. Industrial producers use it to make plastics and resins. High levels of the chemical can lead to illness and even leukemia.

P&G stated that benzene is not an ingredient in any products and that levels detected should not have adverse health effects according to Environmental Protection Agency standards.
