Pampers Recall? Swaddlers, Cruisers Diapers With Dry Max Probe
Pampers Diapers Owned By Proctor and Gamble: Probe By U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission in Swaddlers and Cruiser Diapers: Facebook Pampers Group Calls For Change
The U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission (USPSC) is investigating Pampers diapers with Dry Max after complaints about rashes and burns on several P&G owned diaper brands, Reuters is reporting.
Pampers recently updated its Swaddlers and Cruisers diapers with a thinner, more absorbent technology in what the company has called its biggest diaper innovation in 25 years.
Pampers diapers is owned by the consumer product giant, Proctor and Gamble, and the company says it has done extensive testing on the diapers.
A pampers diapers Facebook group and the website Consumer Affairs have documented complaints about Pampers diapers with Dry Max technology

My 15 month old daughter got a severe diaper rash with red bumps from these new diapers with 'dry max'. As soon as I began to realize it was the diapers I stopped using them and went back to the pampers i have always used. This helped right away...

After purchasing Pampers Cruisers Size 4 diapers with dry max, my daughter Isabel, began to get a very severe diaper rash with open sores and burns. It caused so much discomfort that she screamed at changing time and began to hold her urine and bowel movements.
Other comments on the consumer affairs website pointed out that there could be other reasons that would cause the rash and burns.
Proctor and Gamble says the pampers recall story is being fueled by social media sites like the Facebook pampers diapers group - with parents who are unhappy with the new Swaddlers and Cruisers diapers.
These rumors are being perpetuated by a small number of parents, some of whom are unhappy that we replaced our older Cruisers and Swaddlers products while others support competitive products and the use of cloth diapers," said Pampers Vice President Jodi Allen in a statement.
She added that some of those parents "specifically sought to promote the myth that our product causes 'chemical burns.'"
The company said it has received fewer than two complaints about diaper rash for every one million diapers sold, which it said is average for its business.
At the time of this post there seems to be no official recall just the investigation by the USCPSC.
Clearly, at least some of the 4,000 plus members of the Facebook Pampers Diapers group disagree, with pages of photographs of baby's who clearly have some sort of rash.
Proctor and Gamble has a Pampers hot line number 1-800-PAMPERS (1-800-726-7377).
