URGENT RECALL: Durex Real Feel condoms recalled over splitting fears

A batch of Durex Real Feel condoms have been recalled in Australia over fears they could split.

The company said the affected batch of non-latex condoms (1000432443 – expiry January 2021) will likely not meet specifications at the end of its shelf-life in 2021.

“We recently found that a limited number of non-latex Real Feel condoms made earlier this year are not passing our stringent shelf-life durability tests,” Durex said in a statement.


“There is no immediate safety concern for consumers and only one batch is affected.”

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) said there have been no “adverse events” reported in Australia regarding this batch of condoms.

The product was distributed to retailers from 8 May 2018 until 25 June 2018.

People are being urged not to use the condoms from the affected batch and to return them for a refund.
