Menstrual tampon labeling

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA publishes final rule in Oct. 18 Federal Register to apply the term "ultra" absorbency to describe tampons that absorb 15-18 g of fluid, as measured by the syngyna test. The rule is intended to enable consumers to more effectively compare the absorbency of different brands and styles of tampons. The agency also issues a proposed rule changing the standardized menstrual tampon term "junior" to "light," noting that "junior" wrongly implies that the product is intended only for younger women while women of any age with light menstrual flow may seek to use the product
