The product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin would like to help spread the word about a recent recall of baby wipes. Nutek Disposables of Pennsylvania has issued a voluntary recall for its baby wipes because some packages may contain a bacteria that’s often resistant to common antibiotics.
The wipes being recalled are: Cuties, Diapers.com, Femtex, Fred’s, Kidgets, Member’s Mark, Simply Right, Sunny Smiles, Tender Touch and Well Beginnings.
They were sold to: Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Family Dollar, Fred’s and Diapers.com.
After it received some complaints of discoloration and an odor, Nutek said it conducted tests and found that some of the products contained the bacteria, Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia).
B. cepacia poses no risk to healthy people. But those with weakened immune systems or lung diseases, could be infected.
The company said it has received several reports of rashes, irritation and fever — but “these reports have not been confirmed to be related to the use of these products.”
Nutek hasn’t yet pinpointed how the bacteria got into the supply. It has stopped shipping baby wipes made in that facility.
Parents are advised to stop using the wipes immediately and return to their store of purchase for a full refund or to call Nutek at 1-855-646-4351, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. EDT.
