The Honest Company, co-founded by actress Jessica Alba, is voluntarily recalling some its baby wipes due to the potential for mould in the wipes.

The natural beauty company is recalling some wipes found in 10-count, 72-count, 288-count, and 576-count packages. The wipes can also be found in Honest Diaper Cakes, Baby Basics Gift Sets, and Baby Arrival Gift Sets from The Honest Company. No other The Honest Company products are impacted by this recall.

"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. Out of an abundance of caution, The Honest Company has decided to voluntarily recall certain lots of this product," states the recall.

The affected UPC codes 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

Not sure if yours are affected? Check the lot number that appears at the back of the package. The Honest Company has an online tool that lets you type in the code to see if your purchase is included in the recall.
