'Tampax' Cleared In Suit.

Tambrands Ltd., White Plains, NY--a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble, Cincinnati, OH, and maker of "Tampax" tampons--was cleared last month on charges of insufficient health warnings on packages. The allegations were made in the U.K. by a woman who developed Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) in 1994 after use of a tampon. The woman contended that had she been properly warned about the risks of TSS on the product's packaging she would have removed the tampon sooner. For its part, Tambrands denied liability and stressed that it was the package that was on trial, not the product itself.
