It’s time we inspect condoms thoroughly before putting them to use, because China’s fake condoms might leave you regretting, for life. Large stocks of unsafe contraceptives have found their way to India, Italy, and other foreign countries.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you should be well aware of the array of fake products available in China, and as of now it can literally make you responsible for a newborn. Italian customs recently seized 600,000 counterfeit condoms at Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci airport. Customs officials have said they believe the condoms were produced in China.
Sources say China-made fake condoms may have been shipped to India, among other countries without being discovered by customs authorities. The extensive use of China’s online shopping sites is being cited as one of the reasons for this. China produces about a billion condoms per year, and that’s 25% of the world’s total! One can’t tell how much of it is fake, but the police seizes millions of fakes every passing year.
Shanghai said they confiscated three million counterfeit condoms along with manufacturing machines in Shanghai and Henan provinces on April 21. “I couldn’t see any difference but a doctor told me that I had been using counterfeit condoms,” Guangdong-based The Time Weekly quoted Wan Wei, a man who got his wife pregnant twice without wanting to. “Such condoms may lead to accidental pregnancies and infections,” a Guangzhou doctor was quoted as saying.
