Ansell's Thailand Condoms in Detention
September 19, 2005
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has ruled that all condoms from the Ansell manufacturing plant in Thailand bound for the U.S. market must undergo testing after two lots of condoms failed to meet FDA standards within the last seven weeks. FDA placed the Surat Thani facility in "Level 2 detention," meaning at least 10 successive shipments must pass FDA testing before release into the U.S. market.
