In keeping with their namesake ways, the Honest Company announced on Friday that it was voluntarily recalling several lots of its baby wipes. According to a notice posted on the company's website, the recall affects a number of wipe lots that were sold in both the United States and Canada due to the possible presence of mold on the baby wipes. If you recently bought Honest Company baby wipes — or any other packages that contained the item — here's how to tell if your Honest Company baby wipes were recalled.
Luckily, the company has made it pretty easy to find out. First, you'll want to flip over your package of baby wipes and look for the lot number printed in black at the bottom. Then, go to the Honest Company's recall page and enter your package's five-digit lot number in the search box provided. Ta-da! You'll instantly receive a simple message letting you know if your package of baby wipes was affected by the recall or not.
If your baby wipes were recalled, you can return the product wherever you purchased it for a full refund. Those with questions about the recall or refunding their baby wipes can phone the Honest Company at 888-862-8818.
"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 Honest Company wrote in its recall notice. "Out of an abundance of caution, The Honest Company has decided to voluntarily recall certain lots of this product."
The recall affects both large and small packages of their biodegradable, plant-based baby wipes (from 10-count packs to 576-count packs), as well as wipes included in the company's Honest Diaper Cakes, Baby Basics Gift Set, and Baby Arrival Gift Set. Online, the wipes are now out of stock, but a small notice promises that wipes will be back in stock soon. For now, if you're a fan of the wipes, confirming that your batch doesn't fall within the recall is the first, and most helpful, step.
If you have Honest Company baby wipes at home, make sure you check your lot number and return (or toss) any affected packs, then share with any friends who may also be affected.
