ATLANTA — The large box store Sam’s club has issued a recall on a popular brand of baby wipes, fearing they may cause a possible bacterial contamination.

Sam’s Club alerted customers who purchased Sam’s Club Simply Right baby rights that the item was recalled recently via email.

According to the Salina Post, the Simply Right branded baby wipes offered for sale at Sam’s Clubs beginning on June 30 may be contaminated with B. cepacia bacteria, and users should return the wipes.

The bacteria poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, children with chronic health problems or a weakened immune system may be more susceptible to infections with B. cepacia.

The product has been removed from store shelves, and anyone who has purchased the wipes can return them for a full refund.

      Instead of worrying about a lawsuit, be a good parent and worry about getting your child well. The odds of Finding a reputable lawyer to take such a case and then proving these wipes made your child ill would be slim to none…. And mostly none. There is no pot of gold to be had here.

    We have used these for years in our child care center. This morning, a parent alerted us to the problem. When we called Sam’s, they said that they were being recalled and we should have received an email. When we told them that we did now, the reply was – You can return them to the store!

    I bought these wipes about 4 weeks ago. I used them on my three kids and myself. About three weeks ago we all became really sick. They stayed hone from school an entire week. About three weeks ago, my son, who was one at the time, developed these hard bumps everyday that looked like some sort of bite, but turned into what looked like cuts or scratched sores. We all developed horrible Mucus coughs and fevers. Their doctor thought the sores could be an allergic reaction and prescribed allergy medicine for all of them. My three year old son had it worse. Fever, lost of appetite, and some kind of bacteria. He was prescribe antibiotics along with the allergy medicine. I just found out about the recall tonight. Out of the 900 (9 packs), i have used about 500 (5 packs). I have also sent a few packs to his daycare for use.

    I was never notified by Sam’s Club. I finally got to bring my daughter home from NICU after 59 days. She was born 3 months early and has a compromised immune system. I have been using these wipes since we have been home. I pray this doesn’t effect her.
