Parents in California and across the country strive to keep their children safe. Parents of young children often choose products such as formula, diapers and wipes carefully, wanting to keep children safe from harmful ingredients or exposure. A class action suit filed in a California court alleges that baby wipes sold by Walmart-owned Sam's Club endangered consumers and babies because of bacterial contamination.
According to reports, Sam's Club issued a customer warning on Oct. 10, stating that the wipes in question might be contaminated. The contamination was a bacteria known as B. cepacia, which the company said was not dangerous to healthy individuals. Individuals with weakened immune systems or other health issues could be affected by the bacteria, said the company.
