Parents squirm after spotting worms in diapers

KIMBERLY-CLARK, an American personal care products company, has offered to refund or exchange a new set of diapers after a local consumer complained about worms in Huggies diapers which were purchased online.

The Shanghai Morning Post reported yesterday that a man, surnamed Peng, called the company's hotline to complain that a pack of infant diapers he bought online were infected with worms.

Peng said he bought two packs of Huggies diapers, each of them containing 72 pieces, in March before the birth of his child.

When his wife changed the infant's diapers recently, she spotted the worms, Peng said.

"We were shocked to see worms squirming from the baby's hip," he told the paper.

Peng said he found more such worms in the package.

"It is disgusting," his wife told the newspaper reporters who visited their place and saw first-hand the worms in the packet.

The expiry period of the diapers is three years.

Kimberly-Clark told Shanghai Daily yesterday that it had talked to Peng and offered a refund or exchange the diapers, but he did not accept the offer.

Cai Min, a PR official at Kimberly-Clark China, said the company hoped that Peng would hand over a sample of the diaper to determine if the worms were present during packaging.

The company said it would contact Peng again today.
