These condoms are out

Popular condoms recalled over quality concerns

Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) has recalled sure condoms over what they termed as quality concerns.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Kemsa asked those concerned to assist Lifeline laboratories who manufacture Sure condoms, with the recall of the products since they were supplied through Kemsa.

Kemsa quality assurance manager Dr John Aduda stated: "Please accord Lifeline Laboratories the necessary operation in order to successfully conclude the process.”

The affected condoms have batch numbers 17DN754 and 17DN052 and are set to expire between December 2021 and December 2022.

In 2018, fake condoms hit the Kenyan market causing worry since it put the public at risk of contracting Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).

PS Kenya issued a directive to the public to be aware of the appropriate labeling of the Trust Studded brand of condoms.

In an advert placed in local dailies, consumers were asked to check the front face of a pack of Trust Studded to ensure that it has a triple-tested icon on the bottom left side and a white stripe with pack content.

Condoms, latex and polyurethane versions, have been the only method available to prevent transmission of STIs and HIV for ages.
