Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Out of an abundance of caution, Ansell is implementing a voluntary recall of the Zero Latex Condom (regular) product. The condom has met or exceeded test and quality standards required by the Food and Drug Administration. However, we are experiencing a number of complaints concerning the difficulty in unrolling and subsequent breakage, and so we are asking to have all products returned.
