Calls For Worldwide Aldi Recall Over Baby Wipes
A mother is demanding a public recall as she claims her daughter’s face was left “like she'd suffered sunburn” after using Aldi wet wipes designed for newborns.
Following a recommendation from a friend, Hayley Neale started to use the Mamia Newborn Wipes on her daughter Martha for a few weeks.
However, when Martha, 2, wiped her face with the wipes, she was left with a sore, red and blotchy face.
“I get through several packets a week with my two little ones, and I’d not had a problem before,” said single mum Hayley, who also has a son, Harry, who is one.
But these wipes caused an instant reaction," she continued.
“Martha has sensitive skin, so I’ve always been careful. For a long time, I only used water wipes.
"But then someone told me about Aldi’s sensitive wipes so I tried them and they were great, saving me a lot of money.
“I then moved onto the newborn ones, and they were no trouble either.
“But to see Martha’s skin after using this batch, it was red and blotchy.
"She was so uncomfortable; she kept touching her face which was hot and shiny for several hours afterwards. It was like she’d been sunburnt.”
An Aldi spokesperson said: “We are very sorry to hear of Ms Neale’s experience with our Mamia Newborn Sensitive Wipes.
"We would like to reassure her there has been no change to the specification or the supplier of this product.
“All of our baby and toddler products are rigorously tested before going on sale, but as with all cosmetic products, there is the possibility of an individual intolerance to a particular ingredient.
"We will share Ms Neale’s feedback with our supplier.”
