Durex issues product recall for batches of Real Feel and Latex Free condoms

Posted: July 31, 2018

Reckitt Benckiser Group plc has announced that it is recalling certain batches of its non-latex Durex Real Feel and Durex Latex Free condoms which have expiry dates between December 2020 and February 2021 after it emerged that the products were not passing the manufacturer’s shelf-life durability tests.

“Our tests have shown that some batches which are currently on the market in UK and Ireland do not pass the requirements for burst pressure towards the end of the shelf life for the product,” the company said in a statement on its website.

Consumers with the affected products are being advised not to use the condoms and to return them to the place of purchase for a refund or to send them direct to a Freepost address set up by the company.
