The levels of benzene detected in the sprays wouldn't be enough to be harmful, Procter & Gamble said, citing exposure modeling and cancer risk assessments from the EPA.

There've been no reports of adverse events and the deodorants are being recalled out of an abundance of caution, the company said.

Other Old Spice and Secret products aren't impacted by the issue.
