Sweden Bans Chinese-Made Condoms
October 19, 2010
Sweden's Medical Products Agency said recently that because the Chinese manufacturers of PutOn brand condoms had not met European Union safety certification standards, the products cannot be sold in Sweden. "No freestanding organization has examined the product, so no one knows if the condoms comply with standards," investigator Gert Bruse told the TT news agency. "It is serious from a public health standpoint." Tom Wendt, a spokesperson for Sibbarps, which distributes the condoms, called the sales ban a "catastrophe" and blamed a paperwork error for the problem. He said the product does in fact hold EU certification.
