Kotex recalling certain tampons after reports of unraveling, pieces left in body

A popular tampon brand is voluntarily recalling certain items because there are reports they are coming apart and unraveling.

The product in question is the U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, Regular Absorbency, sold in the United States or Canada.

Items were manufactured before Oct. 16, 2018. No other products were affected by this recall, says parent company Kimberly-Clark Worldwide, Inc.



According to Kimberly-Clark, the U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, Super Absorbency, or U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, Super Plus Absorbency, are still good to use.

Consumers can contact Kimberly-Clark’s Consumer Service team at 1-888-255-3499 regarding the recall.
