The FDA is warning parents not to use sunscreen sprays on children because they might breathe in the ingredients.

According to an article on ConsumerReports.org, the FDA wants to do more testing on how this could affect the lungs of young children.

As for adults, the FDA recommends spraying the sunscreen on their hands and applying it to the skin that way.
