The Procter & Gamble Company has voluntarily recalled all lots of specific Secret and Old Spice aerosol spray antiperspirants and Old Spice Below Deck aerosol spray products sold in the U.S. The products, which have expiration dates through September 2023, have been recalled due to the detection of benzene.
