The FDA is reviewing reports of adverse events in children and pets who were inadvertently exposed to Evamist.

Per the FDA website, adverse events reported in unintentionally exposed children include;

premature puberty, nipple swelling, and breast development in girls
breast enlargement in boys
FDA has also received reports of inadvertent exposure in pets. Pets exposed to Evamist may exhibit signs such as mammary/nipple enlargement and vulvar swelling.

"Women using Evamist need to be aware of the potential risks to children who come in contact with the area of skin where this drug is applied," says Julie Beitz, M.D., a director of drug evaluation with FDA. "It is important that people know to keep both children and pets away from the product to minimize exposure."

It's an estradiol transdermal spray made for menopausal women, intended to be applied to the inner arm. There are a bazillion warnings on the website. You're not supposed to let anyone (or any pet) touch the application site for at least 30 minutes. It's intended to absorb through the skin so it makes sense that anyone else touching it would be affected as well.
