Kotex Tampon boxes

Kimberly-Clark has recalled 1,400 cases of Kotex tampons due to fears they may be infected with bacteria after tests detected Enterobacter sakazakii on a single plastic tube.

The bacterium is known to cause a variety of health problems including vaginal infections, urinary tract infections, pelvic inflammatory disease or other potentially life-threatening infections.

The company is asking for customers to return 18-count and 36-count boxes of Kotex Natural Balance Security Unscented Tampons Regular Absorbency with sku numbers 15063 and 15068.

The tampons in question were sold in Texas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. at Walmart, Fry's and Smith's stores.

98% of the product has been recovered, but that means there are still a few boxes out there! Check your tampons ladies and call Kimberly-Clark's consumer office at 1-800-335-6839 if you discover you have a box matching the description above!

New Poise Pads Promise To Make You Feel Pretty When You Pee

Having a leaky bladder has never been sexier, thanks to Poise's new hourglass shaped pads.

Kimberly-Clark hopes this new marketing strategy will change women's perception of bladder protection products. Instead of being something old people wear, they want to be known as a "feminine care product".

Poise's senior brand manager Joe Kuester explains:

"It’s brilliant in the sense that when women are leaking urine from their bladders they can feel very uncomfortable, very unclean, and they certainly don’t feel sexy. What Kimberly-Clark is trying to achieve here is that you can still feel feminine, you can still feel like a woman and every bit as pretty."

We're not sure how a pad that "fits your curves" will do that, but if you say so Joe.
