Select lot numbers of baby wipes have been pulled from Walmart shelves. The retail giant sent out a notice to all of its stores last week, but has yet to place a recall of the item on their website or make an official announcement.

The company confirmed to the Miami Herald on Tuesday, “Walmart proactively removed select lot numbers of Parents Choice baby wipes from stores due to a quality issue. We are working closely with the supplier and FDA to investigate the issue. Customers may return the product to any Walmart store for a refund.”

Parents have recently taken to social media about the Parent’s Choice brand baby wipes changing colors and leaving stains on the skin. One report mentioned the wipes caused a burning sensation. Others have complained about respiratory issues associated with the wipes.

A Facebook user, on Apr. 30, posted an update notice which was sent out to Walmart stores. In the update, it says that stores were notified on Apr. 25 and instructed to remove specific lot numbers of the baby wipes and send them to the return center.  The update, dated Apr. 28, added seven more lot numbers to the list.

Another user on Twitter posted on May 1, a screenshot of a chat with a representative, denying any recall.

As of this writing, Walmart has yet to make an official announcement or list a recall on their website.

The lot numbers affected are: 22075, 22076, 22077, 22078, 22079, 22080, 22081, 22082, 22083, 22084, 22085, 22089, 22090, 22091, 22092, 22093, 22094, 22095.
