    Exclamation Harmful chemical in Baby Wipes. Banned in NZ still selling here in Aus

    http://www.bayofplentytimes.co.nz/ne...-risk/1104165/
    Not sure if this has already been posted here? I was very upset when I read it. 2 of the 3 different brands of wipes I had here have the yucky Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate in them.
    The premium Aldi wipes in the large 240 pack (extra thick & soft) it in them and so do the Coles brand ones. Luckily I just stocked up on Huggies when they were on sale at TRU and they don't have it.

    Not only are Woolworths still selling their brand and the homebrand wipes, I noticed my local store are selling the Woolies ones for half price, trying to get rid of them

    Suddenly a lot happier that only Huggies and Kleenex don't flair up my little man's bottom.

    I would take them back and ask for a refund.

    I signed the petition, and was disappointed to see I was only signee no 175. More people need to sign this petition. We only use eco-wipes, but would like to see other bubs not exposed to these unnecessary and banned chemicals.
