Rockline Industries recalls bacteria-infested baby wipes in 'silent' recall; U.S. FDA is culpable for inadequate inspections and enforcement, says Milwaukee's Journal Sentinel

LOS ANGELES , January 3, 2012 () – Rockline Industries recalled its baby wipes due to bacteria infestation for the fifth time in a decade, according to the Fierce Pharma Manufacturing on Dec. 30.

Rockline Industries has so far recalled its baby wipes in 2001, 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2011, due to bacterial contamination.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) did not require Rockline to inform the public about the recall. The FDA buried the recall information
“deep” on the FDA website, according to the publication.
