Eighteen Old Spice and Secret deodorant sprays have been recalled because the products contain benzene, which has been linked to leukemia and blood cancers.

Cincinnati-based parent company Proctor and Gamble (P&G) released a 'voluntary' recall list of 18 aerosol deodorants on November 23.

Recalled products include the Old Spice Pure Sport gift set, as well as popular scents like Swagger and Powder Fresh.
