Have you used Nutek Disposals Baby Wipes?
Has your child gotten sick from baby wipes? Nutek Disposals has issued a voluntary recall for its baby wipes because some packages contain a bacteria called B. cepacia that is very commonly resistant to antibiotics.
The wipes being recalled were sold through Walgreens, Sam’s Clubs, Family Dollar, Fred’s and Diapers.com. The wipes are labeled as Cuties, Diapers.com, Femtex, Fred’s, Kidgets, Member’s Mark, Simply Right, Sunny Smiles, Tender Touch, and Well Beginnings. On October 10, 2014, Sam’s recalled by letter its Simply Right baby wipes put on store shelves beginning June 30, 2014 and forward. Now, Nutek, the manufacturer of all these brands, has recalled all sent out since June, 2014.
- cepacia is easily spread from person-to-person. It causes inflammation in the lungs and eventually all lung function deteriorates. While B. cepacia poses little risk to most healthy people, persons with weakened immune systems or chronic lung disease, particularly cystic fibrosis, may be more susceptible to infections from B. cepacia. If your child has a weakened immune system or a chronic lung disease and believe you have used one of the affected wipes, you should contact the attorneys at Frasier, Frasier & Hickman, LLP.
The recalls request that the infected wipes be returned to Sam’s and other distributors for a “full refund.” The attorneys at Frasier, Frasier & Hickman strongly recommend against this as these wipes should be preserved as evidence.
Frasier, Frasier & Hickman, LLP, has experience handling claims for defective products and the bad medical results from them. We are currently handling cases against Nutek Disposables for these infected baby wipes.
