Pennsylvania-based baby wipe manufacturer Nutek Disposables issued a nationwide voluntary recall on Oct. 25. The recall, announced by the FDA, affects several brands produced by Nutek, including Cuties, Diapers.com, Femtex, Fred’s, Kidgets, Member’s Mark, Simply Right, Sunny Smiles, Tender Touch and Well Beginnings.
The recall follows a small number of complaints of odor and discoloration, which Nutek found to be caused by bacteria. The bacteria, Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia), isn’t really harmful to healthy people, but those with weak immune systems or chronic lung diseases are more susceptible to infection.
Wipes were sold in Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Family Dollar, Fred’s and Diapers.com. Customers can return the product for a full refund, and call the company at 1-855-646-4351 for more information.
