Earlier today Kimberly-Clark issued a recall of a limited number of its regular absorbency Kotex Natural Balance Security Unscented Tampons. The packages included in the recall were all distributed for sale in the United States. These tampons were manufactured with a raw material contaminated with a bacterium, Enterobacter sakazakii, which may cause health risks, including vaginal infections, urinary tract infections (UTIs), pelvic inflammatory disease or infections that can be life-threatening. Women with serious existing illnesses, cancer or immune-compromised conditions, such as HIV, are at increased risk.
