The store has urged customers to check their Durex Real Feel and Durex Latex Free contraception. 

Customers should look at the batch number on the bottom of the pack and on the foil wrapping of individual condoms. 

Shoppers can return the condoms to the stores where they bought them for a full refund.

Durex said in a statement: “Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC are recalling certain batches of Durex Real Feel and the Durex Latex Free condoms.

“They recently found that a limited number of the above condoms are not passing their stringent shelf-life durability tests as they fail the requirements for the burst pressure towards the end of their shelf life.

“Only for the batches of condoms affected by this issue, there could be an increase in the number of condoms that burst during application or use.”

The company has told customers to consult a doctor or pharmacist within 72 hours if their condom splits during sex.
