A bacterium called burkholderia cepacian was identified in two batches after testing.

The reason for the recall is that a bacterium called burkholderia cepacian was identified after testing.

Huggies said while the bacteria poses "little medical risk to healthy people" it may cause serious infections or other health issues in people who have a weakened immune system.

Huggies also added that the bacteria was only found in the select batches of the limited edition wipes and not in any other wipes.

Anyone who has bought these wipes that has a batch code of B21072004 or D21072005 printed on the side of the pack is advised to stop using them immediately and contact Huggies.
