SIC Notícias | About 345,000 used condoms were cleaned and sold as new

Vietnamese police confiscated some 345,000 used condoms that were cleaned and sold as new, state media said.

The images transmitted by Vietnamese state television (VTV) showed dozens of bags – containing contraceptives – spread across the floor of a warehouse in the southern province of Binh Duong.

Police said the bags weighed more than 360 kilograms, equivalent to 345,000 condoms.

The warehouse owner said he received a “monthly contribution of used condoms from an unknown person“.

A detained woman told police during the seizure that the contraceptives used were first boiled in water, then dried and refurbished before being packed and resold again, according to the CNN.

VTV said it is not yet known how many recycled condoms have been sold.

The detained woman said she received 15 cents for every kilogram of recycled condoms she produced.
