(KMOV)-- A government study finds no link between cases of severe diaper rash and Pampers Dry Max diapers.
When the diapers were introduced in May, some parents complained their babies developed a severe rash. Moms and dad created online petitions and campaigns in an effort to persuade Pampers to re-work or recall their product.
In a report, the government says it reviewed nearly 4,700 claims and did not find a link between the rash and diapers.
Of the claims, 85% came in the first month the diapers were on store shelves.
