Durex is recalling a batch of its condoms in Singapore and Malaysia, as it did not meet its stringent shelf-life durability tests.

In a statement posted on its website, the condom manufacturer said it had recently found that a limited number of non-latex Real Feel condoms made earlier this year did not comply to the tests.

"The safety of our consumers always comes first, and this is reflected in our rigorous quality standards," it said.

Durex noted that there were no immediate safety concerns for consumers and no other products were affected.

The recalled products has the batch number 1000433144, 1000438055, and 1000422259, and these batch numbers are shown on the bottom of the pack and on the foil wrapping of individual condoms.

Durex added it is working closely with the relevant regulatory authorities to recall the batches.

"We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you," it added.

An ad for the recall was published in Malaysia's The Star newspaper today (Aug 7). Photographs of the advertisement made a buzz on Whatsapp groups.

Customers who bought the affected products can return them directly to Durex for a full refund.
