Fake ‘Durex’ factory recycling USED CONDOMS triggers STI panic

- 1 MIN READ

The criminals were selling 500,000 boxes of fake “Durex” condoms which were sold in supermarkets, hotels and vending machines across the country.

Alarmingly, some of the cheaply-made condoms even contained recycled rubber from used condoms.

Run out of workshops in rural areas of China, the operation was believed to be worth a total of 50 million yuan.

Local police chief Zheng Xidan told Chinese media: “We found the workshops where the suspects made those condoms in rural areas in Henan and Hebei provinces.

He went on: “The hygienic conditions in those villages were very bad.

“We saw the condoms they were making — they blended the condoms with silicone oil in a bucket.”

Chinese condom maker Chen He said none of the knock-off rubbers had been tested for bacteria, fungi, or holes.

He added: “Some of those cheap condoms are even recycled from used ones.”
