Officials: 6 New Jersey Women Hospitalized after Botched Butt JobsNEWARK, N.J. (AP/ 1010 WINS) -- Six women in New Jersey are recovering after they received buttocks-enhancement injections containing silicone used to caulk bathtubs.
State health officials say the women, from Essex County, apparently underwent cosmetic procedures from unlicensed providers.

Investigators have not determined if the cases are related.
No arrests have been made.
Instead of medical-grade silicone, the women received a diluted version of nonmedical-grade silicone.
State epidemiologist Tina Tan says there's the risk for more serious complications when infections are not treated early.
