Cheapism Logo By Saundra Latham of Cheapism | Slide 1 of 19: Do you use Old Spice or Secret deodorant sprays? You might need to throw them out, manufacturer Procter & Gamble says. Some of the products have been found to contain benzene, a known carcinogen, and while the company insists any health risks are low, it decided to issue the recall out of "an abundance of caution." The incident comes on the heels of Walmart pulling aromatherapy spray from the shelves after it was linked to a deadly bacteria, so the caution might be warranted. Though consumers often take product safety for granted, accidents — and recalls — happen. From dangerous cars to risky toys, here are some of the most notable items that have been yanked off the market before anyone else got hurt.Related: Every Major Food Recall in the Past Year
