Durex has initiated a product recall for one batch of condoms due to durability concerns
“The safety of our consumers always comes first, and this is reflected in our rigorous quality standards,” Durex says.
“We recently found that a limited number of non-latex Real Feel condoms made earlier this year are not passing our stringent shelf-life durability tests.”
The company says that there is no immediate safety concern for consumers, and that only one batch is affected.
Working with the TGA, the company has recalled the affected batch of non-latex Real Feel condoms: batch number 1000432443 (expiry Jan 2021).
No other Durex products are affected.
The move follows a recall in the UK, where Real Feel and Latex Free condoms with expiry dates between December 2020 and February 2021 did not pass shelf life tests.
The BBC reported that there were concerns the condoms could split or break if used near the expiry dates.
