The FAMHP would like to remind consumers and patients about a recall by Reckitt Benckiser of Durex Natural Feeling Extra Lubricated condoms and Durex Real Feeling latex-free polyisoprene condoms. This is a repeat of a safety alert previously issued by the FAMHP that may have escaped the attention of some consumers and patients.
Reckitt Benckiser has identified problems with Durex Natural Feeling Extra Lubricated and Durex Real Feeling latex-free polyisoprene condoms. The manufacturer has noticed that certain batches of these products do not pass their shelf-life durability tests. These condoms do not meet the requirements for burst pressure towards the end of their shelf‑life. This may result in an increased risk of unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases for both the user and the user’s partner.
