Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company Is Voluntarily Recalling 100,000s Of Baby Wipes

Jessica Alba's The Honest Company is facing more public relations problems. This time the firm has had issue a recall on several lots of its baby wipes due to concerns about mold.

Of note, this is a voluntary recall and includes wipes sold in the United States and Canada that were sold individually in Baby Arrival Gift Sets, Baby Basics Gift Sets, and in Honest Diaper Cakes.

The firm notes in a press release that the recall is related to contamination discovered during routine quality testing.

Co-Founder and Chief Purpose Officer of The Honest Company Christopher Gavigan provided an explanation: “The mold that has been identified can be found on citrus plants, like a common orange.”

The statement from the company noted: “We believe the affected product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences, however, impacted wipes do have a spotted discoloration and the aesthetics are unacceptable.”

The baby wipes that are being recalled include:
10-count packages, UPC 0817810011276, 0816645024079, 0817810011276

72-count packages, UPC 0817810011863, 7000000011863, 0816645023584, 0816645023591

288-count packages, UPC 0817810014680

576-count packages, UPC 0817810028540

The manufacturing lot numbers are located on the back of the package. You can use the five-digit lot code to search for packages that have been recalled.

The Honest Company has already had to deal with several lawsuits concerning its baby formula and sunscreen.

Of note, the firm was sued for mislabeling infant baby formula as “organic” when it contained 11 synthetic ingredients that were not organic.

Alba’s company pushed back against the claims, noting that:

“Our Organic Infant Formula is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration and meets all safety and nutritional standards. It is also certified USDA Organic by an independent third party, in strict accordance with the National Organic Program. We are confident this lawsuit will be dismissed.”

In a separate case, a man named Michael Shane filed a lawsuit when he received a “severe sunburn” and “blistering,” which he says was caused by the firm’s ineffective and mislabeled sunscreen.

The PR department at the Honest Company is working overtime to assure customers their products are safe. They have apologized for current recall and pledging to make sure their products are safe and of the highest quality in the future.

The recalled baby wipes should be returned to where they were purchased for a full refund. If you have any question, The Honest Company customer service line is available at 888-862-8818 during business hours.
