Sam’s Club, the big-box chain owned and operated by the same owners as Wal-Mart, recently recalled a popular brand of baby wipes, fearing that the wipes may actually spread bacteria. In a report by one Fox News affiliate, the brand of the wipes is “Simply Right.”
Evidently, Sam’s Club somehow obtained information that these baby wipes may contain a type of bacteria, B. cepacia. Anyone who purchased the wipes after June 30 may have contaminated product and should return the wipes to a Sam’s Club store as soon as possible for a full refund. Supposedly, Sam’s Club has emailed all purchasers and requested they stop using the wipes and return any remaining products.
The bacteria is not necessarily dangerous to a healthy adult. However, it may present a serious danger to those who have weakened immune systems, or also to children. Considering that the target audience of the product is parents of young children, the potential harm from the bacteria is significant.
