Parents Report Glass Shards in Huggies Baby Wipes
Huggies has launched an internal investigation following claims by parents that glass shards have been found in packs of its baby wipes.
Video Allegedly Showing Glass Particles in Baby Wipes Goes Viral
Social media has been abuzz as parents upload photos and videos allegedly documenting glass shards being found in Huggies baby wipes.
The controversy began Thursday evening when a mother in Guam released a video claiming that glass shards were prevalent in at least three packages of baby wipes. In the video, Melissa Estrella uses her fingers to brush shiny residue from the wipes and claims something stabbed her when she was using a wipe on her face.
By Friday morning, Estrella’s video had exceeded 5 million views.
Huggies Responds to Viral Video
In response to Estrella’s videos and photos and videos released by other concerned parents, Huggies released a statement saying it is looking into the matter and that no glass is used during the manufacture of the wipes.
The company has not recalled the baby wipes, but at least one K-Mart in Guam pulled the products from its shelves.
Estrella’s video has since been removed from Facebook, but other videos and photos remain accessible.
