Kimberly-Clark Corp. said only the sleek variety with regular absorbancy were covered by the recall, and no other products were impacted.

The company said the recall is due to a “quality-related defect that could impact the performance of this product.”

The company said that the impacted tampons were manufactured before Oct. 16, 2018. Some customers have complained that the tampons have unraveled or come apart upon removal, with some people having to seek medical attention to remove tampon pieces that were left in the body. Some infections and irritation had been reported, the company said.
