Submission + - Fake condoms are sold in the European market (

An anonymous reader writes: British authorities warn for "fake" condoms that are imported illegally by third world countries after confiscating large quantities at airports. While these condoms look very similar to the originals, they break very easily.
These products are manufactured in the Far East, using cheaper materials to reduce costs. Authorities announced that millions of condoms have been confiscated in the past 18 months, sold in neighborhood stores and open markets. In August, quantities worth 1,5 million pounds were found at Heathrow airport while a similar case had occurred at the Yorkshire airport.
