Procter & Gamble - diapers breaking

We were using Pampers since the birth of our son 11 and a half months ago.We usually buy a lot because we live in a small town and have to drive 80km to the big city.The last box we bought is of very poor quality.It's leaking all over, the seams are coming loose and the gel inside looks like big breadcrumbs.Please see attached pictures.

They are likely counterfeit Get the UPC code, go to pampers web site and verify if they are real and let them know where you bought them. Then search to report counterfeit goods as well.

Procter & Gamble - very frequent leaking batteries

I was always a big admirer of the Duracell. I always prefer to buy these expensive batteries over the cheap ones, just for the simple reason that they are long living and has some reputation of LEAK-PROOF.
I noticed first leak in the sealed pack itself. They were AAA batteries.
Then I saw leak in my remote AC. But I thought that because it was in basement and the conditions are a little harsh, may be thats why they leaked. But mind it that we use that remote almost 3-4 days a week.
Third instance I noticed them leak made me fume. I am watching my TV almost 350 days an year. Hardly few days are left without using my Plasma remote. One day the remote stopped working. To my surprise when I opened, the batteries in that remote were leaked completely. I have attached the picture of the same.
I really don't have any idea to how to sue these guys. The touch of the smart remote is now completely gone and is un-repairable. It will cost me ˆ5000.00 for that remote.
If anyone there is reading these complaints, I would like to request you to please take action and get me a compensation from them, so that they learn a lesson and do not put this crap in the market. It's a hard earned money with lot of difficulty, it hurts a lot.
regards

Procter & Gamble - leaking hearing aid batteries

I bought a 16 count package of Duracell 312 hearing aid batteries. So far, 7 out of 11 of them have quit working in 2 - 3 days. And they are leaking! I called the customer service phone number only to be told that it wasn't "battery acid" and they would send me a coupon for replacements. The $10 off coupon didn't cover the cost and who wants to use more of a product they don't trust. I'm afraid that these leaking batteries will ruin my $$$expensive hearing aids.

This is to inform you that the "duracell batteries" "aa" "aaa" "d" in the past three years has caused great damage to the devices that I installed the batteries into.

Procter & Gamble - not near as good as your previous bra

I've been buying sam's batterries for yrs. since you changed to the duracell i've noticed they don't have power or the lasting cranking power of the old Champions you use to sell. don't know why you change a good thing. Golf carts you better be close to the shop when the gauge moves at all and i just changed my 5 yr old batteries in one of my large trucks preparing for winter, tempted to put the old ones back in. Looking for a new battery supplier. l Disapointed Larry Sanger

Procter & Gamble - ivory bar soap has shrunk!!

Proctor & Gamble is cheating the customer by making the bars of bath soap smaller at the same price!
For decades they put out a decent product at a decent size then, they slip in a smaller bar and now they've even managed to make it even smaller, again!
This is nothing, but pure greed!

Stop buying from them to show them without us their profit will shrink to zero!

Raise the price and stop shrinking the hand soap! Who wants to open a new bar more often thus wasting the customers time (on top of customers $$). Here's another thought: I don't care if the damn thing floats, so how bout taking the air out and put more soap in? It's not greed, it's stupidity at P&G!

Procter & Gamble - leaking batteries

Four AA batteries with a 2016 usable date on them leaked into the battery copmpartment of my WII Fit Balance Board. The batteries have been in the board for about one year. The contact points in the board were corroded and pottasium hydoxide powder was all over the batteries and the battery box. I was able to clean up the mess, install new batteries (Eveready) and the board was functional. This is the third time I have had corrosion/leakage from Duracell batteries. Duracell has no guarantee on its batteries and their quality control seems to have suffered lately.

I have had many - and yes, I mean many - Duracell double-a batteries leak into expensive equipment in the last two years. Previously batteries only leaked if they were dead and left in the device too long afterwards. Now the batteries leak before they go dead. This means that the damage isn't discovered until the functionality of the expensive sleep-sound travel alarm clock, or telephone headset, or digital recording device, or television or stereo remote are close to ruin. Or, sadly, have already been ruined. What are they thinking? I will never buy another Duracell product again. And one can clearly see from my list of troubled device that I have almost exclusively used this brand for years.

Procter & Gamble - I am very disappointed with this inferior product and the money I have wasted

I have used it about seven times and now it no longer will eject the cleaner onto the floor. I have changed the batteries three times. Each time the Swiffer still fails to work. I am very disappointed with this inferior product and the money I have wasted. I have tried several times to contact customer service on the internet, all to no avail.

Procter & Gamble - quality of pampers nappies take a dive

I'm a staunch Pampers baby nappy supporter. Had my 1st daughter 3 years ago, and Pampers, although pricier that competitor products, always delivered. Had my 2nd daughter in November last year and stocked up on my trusty Pampers nappies. I kept one of my first born's 'New Baby No 1' nappies for sentimental reasons, and compared it to the new batch purchased for my new born. They were visibly thinner and more plastic feeling but still effective. The problem came in with 'New Baby No 2' range. My baby leaked through them like a sift! No matter how tight, loose, high or low I tried to fasten them, nothing worked. The problem seems to be the gel strip that does not extend high enough at the back of the nappy. Even tried Pampers' 'Sleep and Play No 2' with same result. I had spent a significant amount of money on utterly useless nappies I am now stuck with and had to change to Huggies. Why are the consumers being done in once hooked with inferior quality? Of course the new 'cotton feel' Pampers range does not have this problem (received a complimentary pack), but is ridiculously expensive! Mommies out there: Be warned! What a dissapointment.

Procter & Gamble - lack of integrity and values

Dear Tide, I have been satisfied with most of your commercials until of late. This one goes against the family integrity and values. We teach our children to tell the truth, yet a mother diliberately tells her daughter that she has not seen her top. When, in fact, she vividly recalls wearing it, staining it, then hiding it. When asked, she wash the top, in Tide of course, puts it back in her room. Then when her daughter wears it, her comment was, "Oh, I see you found the top."
Daughter totally innocent blames it on herself for not finding it.
A mother sits back satisfied she lied to her daughter, smiles and drink
her coffee.
America wonders why so many of our children knows how to lie, cheat and steal. Don't be a part of condoning such behavior.

Procter & Gamble - I will never buy another product from them

Everyone should boycott proctor and gamble. They are shrinking their packages and still charging the same price. Case in point - charmin bath tissue. The mega rolls used to have 400 sheets; now they have 352. Don't these idiots think we notice these things? They believe their consumers are stupid. Buy the northern soft and strong or white cloud from walmart. All better and cheaper. I will never buy another p&g product.
