Uh Oh! Counterfeit Condom Factory Discovered in China

Condoms might top the list of things that should never be counterfeited. Unfortunately, there may be as many as one million ineffective knock-off condoms on the market in China right now.

Four people were arrested this week at a factory allegedly producing and selling condoms that provide little to no protection against disease or pregnancy. What's worse? Authorities said they found "bare-chested" employees using vegetable oil to lubricate the condoms that they then packaged without any sterilization. Whoever came up with this fake factory sounds like they were fulfilling some sort of bizarre fantasy.

This story is scary enough to make someone outside of China paranoid. If you're freaked out, just make sure you never buy condoms labeled as "Jisson, Durex. Rough Rider, Six Sense and Love Card."

Ew, just the thought of something that dirty being used on me makes me cringe a lot. I have to agree with all the problems we have recently had with Chinese products we should really rethink making stuff in the US. I know it's cheaper to make out of the country, but just the amount of jobs and the income coming into the country would make up for it in the long run.

That really is disgusting. Are there any condoms that are made in the US?

This makes me intensely uncomfortable. My partner and I don't use condoms, but the thought of all those other people put at risk makes my belly flip.

This should be a sign of some sort to Americans and our government that we should probably go back to the way things used to be and start making stuff in our own country again. Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against the Chinese. But hearing about stuff like this happening is just scary. Yes, you business-minded ladies, I get that it's cheaper to make stuff in China than here, but really. Cheaper condoms, or peace of mind?

How the heck do you make a counterfeit condom? It so disgusts me sometimes what people will do for money.
