Oh, and that classic cologne is still around, too. Fast forward to earlier this month, and one line of Old Spice products, Secret, and others from parent company Proctor and Gamble, have been voluntarily recalled.

P&G Recalls several brands due to having traces of benzene

Benzene is something you may not hear about often, but when you do, it's usually associated with a recall, like this one. According to the FDA, benzene is classified as a human carcinogen in the U.S. and cannot be used in any products you apply to the body. It has been linked to several cancers and is very dangerous.
