Parents are outraged after a video surfaced online of one Florida mother claiming that the Huggies baby wipes she bought contained pieces of glass. Angel Bradshaw of Port Orange posted a video on Facebook showing that her wipes have little “glistening” spots, and that when she rubbed her hand over them, she got “poked.” She also claimed that she has gotten little cuts on her hands and believes they are from the wipes. The video has over 300,000 views and over 16,000 shares. While many are calling Bradshaw a liar, she says she would never lie about something this serious, and even posted a video of another mother who claims to have found the same thing. “This video has blown up and is all over the U.S. I promise it is real. My babies have had unexplainable diaper rash the last week or so and I change them immediately after they wet or soil. Anyone that knows me knows that I only care for the wellbeing of my children and children in general and wouldn’t lie about this,” she wrote on Facebook.
PLEASE SHARE TO EVERY MOTHER YOU KNOW! I am calling first thing in the morning! I am outraged. I put these on my babies faces, privates, I use them all day! CHECK YOUR WIPES! #huggies #recallhuggies #glassinwipes #infantrecall #babyrecall #recall #huggieswipes **edit** I received a message from another mommy that has placed then under a microscope. I am not lying about this. Just because your wipes are fine doesn’t mean others are not. Please just check and keep your child safe. Here is another video placing them under a microscope. https://www.facebook.com/hope.murphy.98/videos/10153463150782347/

Huggies has responded to the allegations with a statement saying that the company doesn’t use any glass during the manufacturing of its product. “Families put their trust in Huggies wipes every day, and all of our Huggies products have been thoroughly evaluated to ensure they are safe. In addition, we have stringent quality controls in place, and no glass is used during the manufacture of our wipes. As parents ourselves, we know you may have additional questions or concerns,” the company wrote on Facebook.
Under that post, there are many comments from parents. Some of them claim that their children have had unusual rashes from the wipes, while others said they see nothing wrong. “I’m not seeing what a lot of y’all are seeing or feeling. What really gets me is how you all of a sudden have a problem NOW!!! I have read comments where parents are wiping them on the arms and they are causing a “rash”, seriously how hard are you scrubbing your arm? Because if you are scrubbing your babies butts that hard you may have a problem. To the lady who CLAIMS that her baby has little cuts all over her bottom, REALLY?!?!?!?! You just now noticed this? Haven’t taken little one to see a doctor or anything?” Mindy Ireland wrote on Facebook.
As of now, only the Kmart in Guam has pulled the product off of their selves.
