O.B. Tampons Are Back

Johnson and Johnson say new shipments of o.b. tampons have started going out and they should start showing up in a few days or weeks, depending on your store’s restock schedule. You can also get them online at Amazon.com, drugstore.com and soap.com. o.b. Ultras will not be returning as they’ve been discontinued.

The line of tampons, which have a devoted following, started disappearing from the shelves in November, due to an unspecified “manufacturing update.” The company has refused to elaborate, but J&J has been besieged by quality control issues and recalls in the past year.
