Tampon manufacturers say they’re working to replenish the supply of their products after shortages were reported on shelves across the United States.

On Monday, U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan sent a letter to Procter & Gamble, Edgewell Personal Care, Johnson & Johnson and Kimberly-Clark asking what they plan to do to address reports of diminished supply and price gouging by third-party sellers. The Democrat from New Hampshire cited several news reports chronicling a shortage. It comes on the heels of a baby-formula shortage and rising prices on everything from food to clothes to gas — and menstrual products.
