After the shares of Procter and Gamble fell sharply last Thursday afternoon at the New York Stock Exchange Market, it now faces another problem in one of its brands. Leading diaper brand Pampers had a recall with its Dry Max technology, saying that a chemical within the diapers caused chemical burns and rashes to babies.
Procter and Gamble however claimed that there’s no single evidence in proving that even a single baby had a diaper rash in using their premium branded diaper line. Pediatric dermatologists have confirmed the company’s stance that the diapers do not pose any more risk of rash than the previous version. Procter and Gamble also said that if there’s something wrong, they would announce a recall immediately.
For now, there is no diaper recall from P&G, but parents who are concerned about the safety or have a complaint about the product are urged to call the US Consumer Product Safety Commission hotline at 1-800-638-2772.
