Condom manufacturer Durex issued a Canada-wide recall after some of their products failed to pass the company’s “stringent shelf-life durability tests.”
The affected products are from batches of Durex’s Real Free Extra Lubricated 10ct condoms (product code 1000443254) and Real Free 20ct condoms (product code 1000356816) that were manufactured in 2017.
The company says that there is no immediate safety concern for consumers, and the recall is being issued over concerns of the condoms’ registered burst pressure specification towards the end of the product’s shelf-life.
“We are working closely with the Health Canada and have decided to recall affected batches,” said Durex in their product recall.
Those who have purchased a recalled product should be able to return the unused items from wherever they bought it from for a full refund.
To check if a product you own may be affected, you can check for the product codes at the bottom of the box, or on the foil wrapping of each condom.
