Kimberly-Clark is voluntarily recalling its U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, Regular Absorbency, over reports the products are coming apart when women try to take them out of their bodies.
In some cases, users sought “medical attention to remove tampon pieces left in the body,” the recall announcement said.
The recall impacts tampons that were sold in the United States and Canada and were manufactured between October 7, 2016 and October 16, 2018. They were distributed between October 17, 2016 and October 23, 2018.
People who bought this product should stop using it immediately and call the Kimberly-Clark’s Consumer Service team at 1-888-255-3499. The phone lines are open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.
The recall didn’t impact any other U by Kotex-branded products.
