Durex Forced To Recall Some Condoms After Concerns They May Burst
If you have used a Durex condom lately, it probably lasted strong without bursting midway during your action.
This was because the ones in Nigeria are up to standard.
Those in the UK and Ireland haven’t been that lucky and Durex, owned by Reckitt Benckiser, has been forced to recall some batches of its “Real Feel” and “Latex Free” condoms in those markets due to concerns that they may burst.
“Our tests have shown that some batches which are currently on the market in UK & Ireland do not pass the requirements for burst pressure towards the end of the shelf life for the product,” Durex said in a statement.
Durex said only a limited number of batches were affected and that customers would be offered a full refund.
“Anyone using affected batches are advised to stop use over concerns they do not meet safety standards,” the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said in a statement.
“There is a risk that the condom might tear or leak reducing its protection from sexually-transmitted diseases and pregnancy.”
Our readers in UK and Ireland, beware!
