A new recall for The Honest Company

Of all of the products that consumers buy, those that are used by and on our children are probably the ones where safety is the most paramount. Baby products in particular can be dangerous to tiny bodies, delicate immune systems and sensitive skin if they are not manufactured properly or are contaminated.

Once again, The Honest Company, founded by actress Jessica Alba, is facing a recall for one of its products. Alba says that she started the company "to help moms and to give all children a better, safer start." The products are promoted as nontoxic.

The recall, which the company says was done out of "an abundance of caution," involves baby wipes. They are sold in packages of quantities of 10 up to 576. They're also included in gift sets. The wipes may contain mold.

In a statement, the company said that "the affected product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences." Nonetheless, the "impacted wipes do have a spotted discoloration and the aesthetics are unacceptable."

The Honest Company has previously faced a lawsuit over its sunscreen, which consumers said failed to protect their children from sunburn. It's also dealt with a class-action suit and claims in the media that its products weren't as natural and free of chemicals as they claimed to be.

Just this January, the company recalled its baby powder over concerns that there were microorganisms in it that could cause eye and skin infections.

Many recalls occur because consumers report injuries and illnesses. That's why if you or a loved one has been harmed by a product, it's important to determine what your legal options are. In addition to seeking compensation and justice for yourself, you could be preventing harm to others.
