Kenyans have expressed shock over an order to recall ‘Sure’ lubricated condoms.
A statement from the manufacturer to the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency-KEMSA said the condoms have been recalled over ‘quality issues’ of the products.
The letter from the Thailand based company ‘Innolatex Limited’ appealed to KEMSA to accord necessary support to ‘Lifeline laboratories’ of which the condoms were supplied into the county through them.
The letter further says the bunch of condoms might not be safe for use urging KEMSA to help ‘Lifeline laboratory’ for a successful process of recalling the products.
The statement issued early September has sent Kenyans into panic with some vowing to visit HIV testing centres to check on their status.
The ‘Sure’ condoms are freely provided by the government to public institutions countrywide.
They include higher learning institutions, hospitals and other public places.
The affected bunch is NO. 17DN052.
The expiry dates are between December 2021 and December 2022.
