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.

Hello Huggies Parents,

We take any concerns about our products very seriously and we are working directly with this parent to learn more about what happened and how we can help.

The company has not issued a recall of the baby wipes, but Kmart stores in Guam pulled packs of the product from shelves according to Pacific Daily News.
