Parents of Infants: Baby Wipe Recall That You Should Know AboutOctober 28, 2014
Yesterday, the FDA issued a recall statement for numerous baby wipe brands manufactured and sold by Nutek Disposables, Inc. The recalled baby wipes were sold under the following brand names: Cuties, Diapers.com, Femtex, Fred’s, Kidgets, Member’s Mark, Simply Right, Sunny Smiles, Tender Touch, and Well Beginnings. The recalled wipes were sold prior to October 14, 2014 in several major retail stores: Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Family Dollar, Fred’s, and Diapers.com.
The recall was issued because the affected baby wipes were contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia. B. cepacia infection may cause:
- Rash or irritation
- Respiratory problems
- Gastrointestinal problems
Burkholderia cepacia poses serious risk of infection and pneumonia to those with weakened immune systems or lung disease. Further, the disease’s resistance to antiseptic agents facilitates person-to-person communication
Consumers who have purchased but not used Nutek’s recalled products should return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
