Sam’s Club Pulls Potentially Contaminated Baby Wipes From Stores

baby-wipes1(PCM) Sam’s Club stores have announced a voluntary recall of its’ Simply Right baby wipes saying that there is a potential possibility that they could be contaminated. Please note that it is not a full on FDA recall on the product.

The company sent out an email to its’ customers that may have purchased the baby wipes which read:

“You are receiving this message because Sam’s Club’s records indicate that you recently purchased Simply Right baby wipes.

The safety of our members and their families is a top priority at Sam’s Club. Our supplier, Nutek Disposables, Inc., has advised us that some Simply Right branded baby wipes offered for sale at Sam’s Clubs beginning June 30th of this year may be contaminated with B. cepacia bacteria. According to the Centers for Disease Control, this bacteria ‘poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, people who have certain health problems like weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, particularly cystic fibrosis may be more susceptible to infections with B. cepacia.’

“As soon as we learned that some of these baby wipes may not meet our safety and quality standards, we voluntarily directed all clubs to remove the product from our shelves and website and placed an electronic block at our registers so the item can’t be purchased. We continue to work with our supplier to quickly understand the facts and necessary next steps.”

Customers were then informed that they could return the Simply Right baby wipes to Sam’s Club to be issued a full refund.
