Worried parents are taking to social media to warn others about clear, sharp fragments they've found in Huggies baby wipes. They claim the wipes are riddled with glass shards. The company says the "shiny particles" are not glass but are sometimes created by fibers during manufacturing.
One of Melissa Estrella’s videos was uploaded Thursday night and had more than 5 million views. In it, she opens three packages of Huggies baby wipes and brushes off the apparent glass shards with her fingers.
With their unique thick and soft texture, Huggies Baby Wipes are soothing on your baby’s skin while still being an effective way to deal with mess, quickly and easily.
Videos from parents on Facebook claim to show bits of glass in Huggies wipes. While the company says the wipes are safe to use on babies, some moms say the company has been too quick to reassure them.
