Nutek baby wipes settlement deadline extended to Jan. 29

Consumers who purchased Nutek baby wipes tainted with bacteria now have until January 29, 2018, to file claims based on a settlement program negotiated by the class action team at Jones Ward PLC and other law firms.

If you bought or used the wipes manufactured by Nutek between Oct. 25, 2013 and Oct. 25, 2014, you may be entitled to a payment based on the proposed settlement agreement.  The wipes were sold at Sam’s Club, Fred’s, Walgreens, Family Dollar, and other retailers. Jones Ward and other law firms filed a class action lawsuit against Nutek and numerous retailers in New York federal court.

A website for claims is available at


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration alerted consumers October 25, 2014, about a nationwide recall due to odor, discoloration, and positive test results for the  bacteria Burkholderia cepacia. The bacteria can lead to severe respiratory infections, pneumonia and nosocomial infections, particularly if the user has cystic fibrosis.

The settlement will provide a total of $650,000 in additional funds to fully settle and release claims of all persons who purchased or acquired (or are the caretaker, parent or guardian of a minor child who purchased or acquired) or were exposed to certain recalled baby wipes. Certain injuries qualify for a payment of up to $4,000 for medical expenses, pain and suffering.
