"Costco markets and sells Kirkland-branded fragrance free baby wipes containing unsafe levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a new class action lawsuit alleges. 

Plaintiffs Larisa Bullard and Mila Corrigan claim Costco represents its Kirkland Signature Baby Wipes, Fragrance Free baby wipes product is made with naturally derived ingredients despite allegedly containing PFAS. 

“Direct PFAS exposure to infants and babies from defendant’s wipes pose a health risk, the likes of which plaintiffs and class members sought to avoid by purchasing defendant’s plant-based, natural-material, toxin-free products for their babies,” the Costco class action says."
