RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Before you head to the beach or pool for Memorial Weekend, be sure to stock up on sunscreen. But beware, a new report warns not all of them contain the SPF protection promised on the label.
Researchers from 'Consumer Reports' tested 20 brands of sunscreen and only two provided the amount of protection listed on the bottle. Products can get away with labeling like this because although the FDA requires manufacturers to test their own products, the agency does not verify the results.
The company is recommending seven sunscreens from Coppertone and Bullfrog to store brands from Walmart and Target. To see the rankings of the sunscreens that were tested, click HERE.
