The firm that manufactures Sure lubricated condoms has announced a product recall citing quality issues.
The decision to recall the Sure condoms was announced by Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (Kemsa) which distributes the product in the country.
Kemsa appealed to stakeholders to cooperate with Lifeline Laboratories to ensure the defective batches are taken off the shelves.
“Lifeline Laboratories is recalling the above-mention product, Sure lubricated condoms dotted, due to quality issues,” Kemsa’s Qualtity Assurance Manager, Dr John Aduda, said the letter dated September 12, 2019.
Kemsa said the Sure condoms slated for recall are set to expire on December 2021 and December 2022 and have batch numbers 17DN754 and 17DN052.
A spokesperson of Lifeline Laboratories said that they were only contracted by the Thailand based manufacturer, Innolatex Limited to do the recall.
They also advised consumers to check the brand and the date at the bottom of the outer packing and the foil wrapping to see if they are in possession of these potentially defective condoms.
Customers whose condoms match the affected batch numbers are advised to immediately stop using them.
