INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Parents who use Huggies baby wipes took to social media after many claimed the wipes were hurting their children.

Huggies is responding to a report that pieces of glass were found in their baby wipes.

A Huggies spokesperson says the pieces are not glass, but they could be melted fibers.

Aspen Patterson was one of the parents who says she found glass. Patterson says she plans to file a complaint.

“It’s supposed to be soft fibers, you know, there should not be anything hard on it,” Patterson said. “We have a doctor’s appointment and I am just holding on to them and then trying to get hold of Huggies.”

Huggies says it won’t recall the wipes, because they’re not dangerous. But the company has set up a page on its web site to answer questions.

They also issued a response on their Facebook page.

According to CNN, some mothers came to Huggies defense and said the wipes didn’t contain glass.

“I rubbed it all over my hands arms face and legs. Didn’t feel a thing,” wrote Danielle Montez on the Huggies page. “Went on to wipe my baby with the next wipe. Team Huggies for going on 9 years now.”
