Kotex Tampons Recalled After Reports of Unravelling

The Kimberly-Clark Corporation is recalling its U by Kotex Sleek Tampons due to a defect. The company states that tampons have been reported to be unraveling when people remove them, potentially leaving material inside the body. A few reports of injury or illness have been made.

The recalled products were made between October 2016 and October 2018, and were distributed to stores during that same time frame.

The company has set up a webpage where you can check the lot number of your tampons to see if they are affected by the recall. If your product is included, stop using them immediately and contact Kimberly-Clark Customer Service at 1-888-255-3499.

Symptoms that can occur as a result of the defect include infection, nausea, swelling, and vomiting.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey guys!

Our fundraising drive through GoFundMe has progressed well enough for us to sustain most of the magazine operations into the next month. As of June 1st, we're at $1400, but we’ve decided to extend our deadline to June 15th and make $3500 our new goal.

We’re so grateful to our friends, our families, our neighbors, and especially our readers for chipping in, sharing, and donating to the cause of local progressive media. Your support has lifted us up so much and will most assuredly not be lost or forgotten.

If you care about local independent progressive media in an era where multi-millionaires such as John Georges are monopolizing our local press, then please donate any amount you can to make our operation a success. We can do this! Do not give up.

What else can you do if you’ve already donated and can’t donate anymore? Share our content on Facebook and tell people about our fundraising operation. Call and email others who may be able to give. We believe in you because you believe in us and together we can ensure Big Easy Magazine becomes a progressive icon for New Orleans and an inspiration for the expansion of progressive media around the world.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
