Kimberly-Clark Settles Disputes with Balcones Recycling

A 2013 federal court lawsuit accusing a Little Rock recycling company of diverting defective tampons manufactured in Conway to be sold on the "gray market" was dismissed at the request of both sides. A one-paragraph motion to dismiss that said only that the Kimberly-Clark company and Balcones Recycling Inc. 'have resolved their disputes' was granted by U.S. District Judge James Moody Jr. a short time after it was filed. The disputed distribution was announced to have occurred between Oct. 1, 2011, and June 28, 2012, but Brand announced at the time that although the substandard tampons posed potential health risks, the company wasn't aware of any injuries resulting from the distribution. In the recycling company's Oct. 11, 2013, answer to an amended lawsuit, the company denied committing fraud, breaching its contract and violating the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, among other accusations.
