A leading supermarket chain has pulled several brands of baby wipes from shelves after revelations they contain a restricted preservative that may pose a health risk.

Progressive Enterprises - which includes the Countdown, Woolworths and Foodtown supermarkets - said yesterday that it was withdrawing baby wipes containing the chemical iodopropynyl butylcarbamate (IPBC) and offering a refund.
