Procter & Gamble: small group behind Pampers complaints

WASHINGTON (AP) - The maker of Pampers says a small number of parents are behind the rumors that its new diapers are causing severe diaper rashes and blisters.

Procter & Gamble vice president Jodi Allen says some of those parents want the old design back, while others support Pampers' competitors or cloth diapers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating a handful of complaints about new types of Swaddlers and Cruisers diapers. The thinner diapers use the company's Dry Max technology instead of the paper pulp that was used before.

Procter & Gamble says it has received less than two complaints about diaper rash for every one million Pampers sold. A Facebook page asking the company to bring back the older versions of its diapers has more than 4,000 members. Parents also discuss skin treatments and possible boycotts on the site.
