Durex has been forced to recall 14 batches of condoms after they failed durability tests.
The batches in Spain include the Sin Latex and Real Feel condoms, although other brands such as the Natural Feeling, Love Collection and Natural Sensation condoms have been recalled across Europe.
A statement by Reckitt Benckiser, owners of the brand Durex, said:
“The safety of our consumers always comes first, and this is reflected in out rigorous quality standards.
“Our tests have shown that some batches which are currently on the market do not pass the requirements for burst pressure towards the end of the shelf life for the product.
“There could be an increase in the number of condoms that burst during application or use“.
“There is no immediate safety concern for consumers and only a limited number of batches are affected.“
