The Packaging May be Deceiving

| October 12, 2020 | 0 Comments

We all know, over the last several months that there has been a shortage of hand sanitizers and wipes on the market.  All of us have gone to various stores where the shelves are bare with no timeline on when we will see this change.

So, it’s understandable that if we see sanitizing wipes on the shelf that look safe and are plentiful, we make the decision to purchase them, knowing that we will be using them frequently and on a variety of surfaces in our homes, vehicles, offices and restaurants.

What I learned is that the packaging can be deceiving.  An example of that is NuvoMed antibacterial wet wipes, which appears to be safe and effective in dealing with COVID-19 cleaning concerns.

However, as I learned after purchasing, this product has a Prop 65 warning.  However, the warning is hardly readable on the backside of the label.  Prop 65 means that the chemicals in the product are known in the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. 

Would you want to have this product in your home, office or school for you and your associates, or children to be using on a regular, daily basis?

I don’t think so.

So, I reached out the Vons in Mission Hills, where the product was sold.  Over a period of several weeks, I am still waiting to learn why they sold this product, which is made in China and has Prop 65 warning.  Which by the way, the warning was so small that I had to read it with a magnifying glass. 

NuvoMed antibacterial wipes are made in China and bear a Prop 65 warning.
