China Police Hunt for 2 Million Unsafe Condoms: Report
November 9, 2009
The state-run China Youth Daily reports that police in Hunan province have shuttered a factory producing fake, nonsterile condoms and are now trying to track down more than 2 million that have been shipped. Police say the suspect, Li Anping, bought the condoms wholesale, added an unknown lubricant and packaged them without the benefit of sterilization. Li's scheme allegedly produced 2.16 million condoms before authorities closed the plant.
