Is This Possible?
Thousands of kids are injured and hundreds killed yearly from unsafe child products according to CBS News. Even though many products are recalled, very few consumers ever get around to returning or repairing the products. Experts say parents many times do not know about the recalls, and unfortunately the responsible companies do a poor job getting the appropriate information out to the public. Kids in Danger lists the top 5 recalled products as cribs, Maclaren strollers, Bumbos, BuckeyBalls and Nutek Disposables Baby Wipes.
Nutek Disposables Baby Wipes Recall
If you’ve been wondering if your baby wipes are making your child sick and you use Nutek Disposables Baby Wipes, you may not be crazy. Recently, the company Nutek Disposables published a voluntary recall for its baby wipes due to the fact some packages may include the potential dangerous bacteria called Burkholderia cepacia or B. cepacia. Babies with weak immune systems are most at risk.
Where Were The Wipes Sold?
The wipes may have had any of these names: Cuties, Diapers.com, Femtex, Fred’s, Kidgets, Member’s Mark, Simply Right, Sunny Smiles, Tender Touch and Well Beginnings. Consumers could purchase the wipes at the following retailers:
- Sam’s Club
- Family Dollar
Dangers Of Cepacia
Cepacia is effortlessly distributed from person-to-person. The bacteria leads to inflammation in the lungs and over time all lung function deteriorates. Most healthy people are at little risk from B. cepacia, but people who have weakened immune systems or chronic lung disease, might be more vulnerable 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.
