The tampons under the recall were manufactured between October 7, 2016, and October 16, 2018, and distributed between October 17, 2018, and October 23, 2018.

Kimberly-Clark has announced a recall of some Kotex tampons because of a quality-related defect that could lead to infections in women who use them.

Tampons that have reportedly broken apart and left pieces inside users' bodies have been recalled across Canada and the United States.

Some Kotex tampons were recalled Wednesday after reports that the feminine products left pieces inside the body of customers.

Other consumers also reported vaginal infections, irritation and injury from the product, the company said in a statement.

The tampons are sold at retailers in the US and Canada.

The Wisconsin-based company said it received reports of tampons "unravelling and/or coming apart upon removal". A full list of the recalled lot numbers can be found here.

Retailers have been alerted of the recall and have been told to remove the recalled lot numbers from their shelves and post a notification in their stores.

The company notes that any consumers who fear they have had a vaginal injury with symptoms such as pain, bleeding or other discomfort should seek medical attention.

HuffPost reached out to Kimberly-Clark for further comment, but the company did not offer any new or additional information.
