Specific Kotex Tampons Recalled
If you are an avid user of Kotex tampons, you better be careful and check your products.
The tampons subject to the recall — U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, regular absorbency — caused some users “to seek medical attention to remove tampon pieces left in the body,” Kimberly-Clark said in a news release Tuesday. This specific tampon is the only kind subject to the voluntary recall. The company added there has also been a “small number of reports of infections, vaginal irritation, localized vaginal injury, and other symptoms” associated with the U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, regular absorbency.
Specific lot numbers on the bottom of the tampon box will help users determine if their product is subject to the recall. A full list of the recalled lot numbers can be found here.
