Durex recalling faulty condoms
"There is no safety concern for consumers at the moment, and therefore no market action is required," Reckitt Benckiser, the company which owns Durex, told Business Insider South Africa.
"We are working closely with the relevant regulatory authorities."
Thousands of Durex condoms have been recalled in other countries over concerns over their shelf-life.
"Only for the batches of condoms affected by this issue, there could be an increase in the number of condoms that burst during application or use."
But Reckitt Benckiser said the compromised batches were not distributed in South Africa.
As a precautionary measure, we are recalling a few specific batches of Durex Real Feel and Durex Latex Free condoms. No other Durex products are affected.

"Each country has a unique situation with regards to the specific batches they have sold," Reckitt Benckiser said.
"There is no immediate safety concern for [South African] consumers and only a limited number of batches are affected."
