YUCK!!!!!!!  I inspect my tampons before I use them on the rare ocassions I don’t use a sanitary pad.  Mostly to make sure there’s a strong string attached but I’d never thought there’d be mold.

I think any mold going into your vagina is bad and Kotex shouldn’t be like “it’s normal mold.”

Ick! Now I’m thinking of how many tampons I’ve inserted without even thinking twice about checking them. I’m sure none of them had mold but if one had…*shudder*

I’m sure it’s a once in a million occurrence and an unfortunate one for Kotex but, ew.

Well that’ spooky.

……….Sorry, couldn’t help myself.  I’m glad I use OB so I can see the tampon.  Yikes!

The company’s response leads me to believe that they know full well this happens especially if they have had the opportunity to test the mold itself. Clearly they got caught before.

You can slowly push a tampon mostly out of an applicator and push it back in.  I’m not sure how non-applicator tampons work, do you just shove it up there and how do you know how far to push it up?
