TING 1% Athlete’s Foot Spray Recalled Due to Elevated Benzene Levels

Insight Pharmaceuticals is recalling two lots of TING 1% Tolnaftate Athlete’s Foot Spray Antifungal Spray Liquid due to elevated levels of benzene discovered during a recent review by their manufacturer and third-party lab. While benzene is not an ingredient, it was found in the propellant of the affected lots (0H50545 and 1G50645). No other TING 1% Tolnaftate Athlete’s Foot Spray products are affected.

Benzene is a human carcinogen, and exposure can lead to serious health issues, including various cancers. The affected lots were distributed nationwide in the United States through limited retailers and online platforms.
