DALLAS-- Kimberly Clarks has issued a recall on one of its Kotex tampon products.

The company says it is recalling Kotex Natural Balance Security Unscented Tampons: Regular Absorbency after bacteria was found on some of the applicators.

The bacteria could have harmful affects like infection, urinary tract infection, pelvic inflammatory disease or other possible life threatening infections.

The recalled boxes have the SKU numbers 15063 and 15068 on the bottom of the box.

There have been no reports so far of women having infections.  However, if you have a box of the recalled tampons, you should return them to the store.
