Authorities in Vietnam uncovered a vast number of used condoms being recycled and stocked for sale following a raid on an apartment on Saturday.

According to local market monitors, nearly 324,000 used condoms, equivalent to 360 kilos, were recycled at the facility and would be sold on the market later.

They confiscated all products at the facility, which is located at DX12, Hoa Nhut Quarter, Tan Vinh Hiep Ward, Binh Duong Province, located in southern Vietnam.

Upon their swoop on the illegal production base, all the used condoms were found unpackaged and unlabeled.

Pham Thi Thanh Ngoc, owner of the facility, who comes from Nghe An Province, admitted that she had received a monthly input of used condoms from an unknown person.

The used condoms then underwent a process including washing, drying, and reshaping with a dildo in unhygienic conditions before being put up for sale.

Every year, Vietnamese people use 500-600 million condoms, according to statistics.

Using condoms from dubious manufacturing sources poses a huge threat to human health, including severe infection.
