Tesco recall thousands of condoms in Ireland for fear that they could burst

This is not good.

Tesco Ireland have been forced to recall thousands of condoms as they were sold too close to their expiry date, and there are fears that they may burst.

The Durex brands named 'Real Feel' and 'Latest Feel' are the items in question that may no longer be safe to use, and have since been recalled.

A spokesperson for Tesco Ireland told The Irish Sun that packs of 12 and 18 condoms are dated January and February 2016, but were still for sale in stores until a number of weeks ago.

A statement put up on the official Tesco website said that: "Reckitt Benckiser Group Plc are 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 who have purchased these items 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.

More information on returns can be found on the Durex website.

Customers are urged to contact the Durex care line on 01 630 5429 or e-mail consumer.relations-hcukroi@rb.com if they have any questions.
