While this time of year isn’t officially baby-making season, we’ll see what the stats say about that roughly nine months from now.
Durex was recently forced to recall two batches of condoms after Health Canada discovered they had expired before getting into consumers’ hands and, presumably, onto other parts of their body.
According to Health Canada, Durex Real Feel Extra Lubricated 10ct condoms and Real Feel 20ct condoms “distributed in Canada [are] not expected to meet the registered burst pressure specification at end of shelf-life.”
Specifically, the two batches being recalled are:
- – 1000443254 (Durex Real Feel® Extra Lubricated 10ct condoms (UPC 0 67981 98715 7)
- – 1000356816: (Durex Real Feel® 20ct condoms (UPC 0 67981 97177 4)
In layman’s terms, the discovery means these condoms are more susceptible to breaking.
Durex Canada’s website currently leads with an apology “for any inconvenience this may cause you,” such as one of the biggest inconveniences possible. Unwanted baby jokes aside, Durex assures “there is no safety concern for consumers and only specific batches are affected.” The company also says “there is no reason to be worried.”
Customers are able to return the products where they were purchased for a full refund. For more detailed information on the recall, click here.
