CAMARILLO, Calif.- A California mother’s video apparently showing glass on her daughter’s baby wipes prompted a response from Huggies.
Melissa Estrella’s video was uploaded Thursday night and it already has more than 5 million views. In it, she opens three packages of Huggies baby wipes and brushes off the apparent glass shards with her fingers.
That video has since been removed from Facebook, but you can watch it in the video player above. Another similar video remains on Estrella’s page. (Warning: Contains profanity)
“I’m not lying, you guys. There’s glass on my daughter’s wipes,” Estrella says in the video. “I’m just so heart broken I didn’t notice this sooner.”
Huggies released the following statement on its Facebook page at about midnight and responded to individual complaints. Anyone with additional concerns is urged to call the company.
