Durex Condoms

Tesco Ireland has recalled thousands of Durex condoms over fears they could burst during sex because they were sold too close to their expiration date.

The brand's 'Real Feel' and 'Latest Feel' condoms were dated from January 2016 but were still on sale a couple of weeks ago in Tesco stores across Ireland.

According to the Irish Sun, the products are numbered 1000443702 and 10004304726 and customers are advised to return them to Tesco for a refund or dispose of them.

A statement on the company's website reads, "Reckitt Benckiser Group Plc is recalling certain batches of DUREX REAL FEEL & DUREX LATEX FREE condoms."

“They recently found that a limited number of the above condoms are not passing their stringent shelf-life durability tests as they fail the requirements for burst pressure towards the end of their shelf life.

“Customers should return non-latex Durex Real Feel and Durex Latex Free condoms with the recalled batch numbers to the store they bought them from for a full refund.

“You will find the batch number on the bottom of the pack and on the foil wrapping of individual condoms.”

Customers are asked to contact the Durex care line on 01 630 5429 or e-mail consumer.relations-hcukroi@rb.com.
