More than 110 million Chinese-made condoms have been seized in Ghana after laboratory tests revealed they were faulty, Ghanaian officials have said.
“There are holes in them and… the condoms burst easily,” a Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) spokesman told the BBC.The condoms were being distributed free as part of an HIV/Aids prevention campaign by the Ghana Health Service.
“Somehow there was a lapse; the batches of the condoms were not submitted as duly required for the appropriate testing to be conducted,” Thomas Amedzro told the BBC’s Focus on Africa programme.
Anybody using them could be “exposed to sexually transmitted infections or be saddled with unwanted pregnancies”
You may not be able to see the holes with your naked eye but when you look at it under the microscope you can see holes,” he said.
