It has been reported that the federal governement is looking into reports that the new type of diapers put out by Proctor and Gamble's Pampers is causing rashes and possible chemical burns.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission started an investigation this week following complaints of babies and toddlers suffering severe and persistent diaper rashes and blisters that resemble chemical burns.
This new thinner type of diaper uses Pampers "Dry Max" technology. As of right now the company is denying the new product has caused burns on children.
Since this investigation is so new, the CPSC has asked that parents and caregivers report any issues.
CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson encouraged parents to report any problems to the agency, which he said has received only a handful of reports so far. Wolfson said the investigation is in its early stages and the agency is seeking as much information as possible.
