Jessica Alba's The Honest Company has issued a voluntary recall of its baby wipes because packages might contain moldy wipes. It's unlikely the mold is any more dangerous than most household molds you might encounter, but customers should still check their homes for The Honest Company Wipes.

Recalled wipes from the natural beauty company include 10-count, 72-count, 288-count, and 576-count packages, and the wipes can also be found in Honest Diaper Cakes, Baby Basics Gift Sets, and Baby Arrival Gift Sets from The Honest Company. Affected UPC codes include:

  • 10-count packages, UPC 0817810011276, 0816645024079, 0817810011276
  • 72-count packages, UPC 0817810011863, 7000000011863, 0816645023584, 0816645023591
  • 288-count packages, UPC 0817810014680
  • 576-count packages, UPC 0817810028540

"We believe the affected product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences," the company posted on its website. "However, impacted wipes do have a spotted discoloration and the aesthetics are unacceptable."
