Mommy’s Bliss Nipple Cream Recall
Mommy’s Bliss Nipple Cream has been removed from the market because certain ingredients contained in the product could be harmful to nursing infants. On Friday, the FDA issued a warning for mothers not to use the nipple cream and to seek immediate medical care if their baby experiences problems such as respiratory distress, vomiting or diarrhea.
The recalled nipple cream was marketed by California based MOM Enterprises, Inc. to help nursing mothers soothe and heal dry or cracked nipples. Although the label specifically states that there is no need to remove the cream before nursing, the FDA indicates that two of the ingredients could pose a serious health risk. The Mommy’s Bliss Nipple Cream contains chlorphenesin and phenoxyethanol, which could depress the central nervous system, cause repiratory depression or vomiting and diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration for infants.
“The FDA is particularly concerned that nursing infants are being unwittingly exposed by their mothers to this product with dangerous side effects,” said FDA official Janet Woodcock, M.D.
