Well-Known Brand Of Baby Wipes Being Voluntarily Recalled Over Mold Issues

Few things can scare the daylights out of you like a familiar product being recalled, and the fears get ramped up even further when it’s a product we may have used on our precious little ones. That’s the situation now that The Honest Company has voluntarily recalled certain lots of its popular line of baby wipe products. As the Independent Journal Review shares, the recall was issued when some wipes were discovered to possibly be contaminated with mold.

That’s enough to scare the daylights out of any parent, but it sounds like the company has instituted the recall out of an abundance of caution. No health consequences have been reported because of the allegedly moldy wipes, and the company has released full recall information on affected lots and product names on its website.

“Certain lots of these Wipes are being voluntarily recalled due to the possible presence of mold. We believe the affected product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences, however, impacted wipes do have a spotted discoloration and the aesthetics are unacceptable. Out of an abundance of caution, The Honest Company has decided to voluntarily recall certain lots of this product,” a statement reads in part.

Sounds like The Honest Company, which is owned by actress Jessica Alba, has had a rough go of things of late. The company has been slapped with a lawsuit claiming that baby formula it had marketed as organic was chock full of synthetic ingredients. The company has fought back against that claim, but claims of this nature have a way of lingering in the minds of consumers.

“Our Organic Infant Formula is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration and meets all safety and nutritional standards. It is also certified USDA Organic by an independent third party, in strict accordance with the National Organic Program. We are confident this lawsuit will be dismissed,” a statement read in part.

As for the wipe recall, the company sounds genuinely remorseful over the situation, so we’ll have to sit back and see if that translates into consumers looking past the situation and continuing to purchase its products.

“You have brought us into your homes and have trusted us with the most important part of your lives. Your trust has enabled our company to grow and realize our mission of providing safe and effective products for families everywhere,” the company said.
