Hi Janeen, I’m tagging @US_FDA as it is illegal to sell sea sponges for menstrual use in the United States. The data does not support their safety and the fact you haven’t died is not proof they are safe.

And Janeen @Holy_Sponge here is some key info from @US_FDA about the dangers you are exposing women to and the warning letter I hope you receive  https://www.fda.gov/regulatory-information/search-fda-guidance-documents/cpg-sec-345300-menstrual-sponges 

And Janeen @Holy_Sponge the plural of anecdote is not data. Is you want to help women you don’t pass off sea sponges as safe when there is no proof they are— in fact the data says there are significant concerns — you study them and prove they are safe. Women deserve facts.

But thanks for tagging me Jensen from @Holy_Sponge as now I know who to mention in the complaint I am going to send to @US_FDA tonight.
