Worms found in diaper; producer denies problem

A man in Yiwu City, Zhejiang Province is seeking compensation from Huggies Diapers after he found worms in his daughter's diapers.
Fang Hui was stunned when he saw fat worms crawling on the diaper his wife was going to change for their month-old daughter.
Fang complained to Huggies Diapers Shanghai last Thursday about the worms living in the folds of baby diapers he bought from a local supermarket last month.
"It was disgusting and I got goose bumps at the sight of these worms," said Fang's wife.
The couple has posted a warning on a local online forum to warn other young parents of the risks of Huggies Diapers.
"Babies cannot speak even if they feel uncomfortable," said Fang.
After receiving the complaint, the diaper company sent two sales representatives based in Jinhua City in the province to collect a sample of its defective product on Friday. The sample was immediately sent to the company's headquarters in Beijing for examination.
A Huggies China spokesperson, Cai Min, said the test showed that their diapers had no problem and the worms might have got into the diapers after their package was opened.
Cai told Shanghai Daily that worms could not survive the high temperature and high pressure in the diaper's production process.
The company said Fang could return his Huggies diapers for a refund, but Fang rejected the offer yesterday.
The two parties are still negotiating over the compensation.
