Durex recalling batches of ‘Real Feel’ condoms over burst pressure concerns
CANADA — Durex says the company found that specific batches of Durex Real Feel® Extra Lubricated 10ct condoms and Durex Real Feel ® 20ct condoms are not passing shelf-life durability tests.
Following observation of variable burst pressure performance of Polyisoprene Condoms manufactured during 2017, RB conducted an internal investigation and identified that a batch of condoms distributed is not expected to meet the registered burst pressure specification at the end of shelf-life.
“There is no immediate safety concern for consumers and only specific batches are affected,” the company said in a statement. “We are working closely with the Health Canada and have decided to recall affected batches.”
Items recalled are: Durex Real Feel® Extra Lubricated 10ct condoms (UPC 0 67981 98715 7) & Durex Real Feel® 20ct condoms (UPC 0 67981 97177 4) with the following batch number:
