“We found the workshops where the suspects made those condoms in rural areas in Henan and Hebei. They were very simple and crude,” said Zheng Xidan, from Cangnan police.

Ooohh.

I've worked with batches of latex that went bad. You might not think so because it's synthetic and has got that pungent ammonia odor, but it does get moldy.

This... is disgusting.



Chen He, a product manager at Beijing-based condom maker Daxiang, said poor quality condoms were a health risk due to excessive level of bacteria and fungi.

“Normally the making of condoms, categorised as a medical device that has direct contact with the human body, involves sterilisation and electronic tests for holes and thin spots,” Chen said.

“But in those illegal workshops, which are often very dirty, it’s unlikely they have the right methods to control the bacteria and fungi level or test for holes.

“The machines are quite expensive and I don’t think they would bother to buy them.

“Some of those cheap condoms are even recycled from used ones.”

Even more of a problem with natural latex. If not kept clean and stored right it can degrade quickly.

All you need to do is turn them inside out and they are ready for reuse.
