10 brands of baby wipes being recalled

(NBC) – Ten brands of baby wipes are being recalled nationwide because they may be contaminated with bacteria.

Nutek Disposables, Inc. of Pennsylvania is recalling all lots of the following brands of baby wipes: Cuties, diapers.com, Femtex, Kidgets, Member’s Mark, Simply Right, Sunny Smiles, Tender Touch, and Well Beginnings.

The wipes were sold at online retailers, including amazon.com and diapers.com and at retail stores, including Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Family Dollar and Fred’s Stores.

Nutek Disposables manufactures the wipes and tested some of them after receiving consumer complaints of a bad odor and discoloration.

Some of the wipes tested positive for a type of bacteria (burkholderia cepacia) that usually poses no health risk to the healthy, but could be dangerous to those with weakened immune systems.

Consumers can return the products to the store where purchased for a full refund.
