Shanghai authorities arrested nine people and confiscated an ungodly amount of counterfeit Jissbon and Durex brand condoms after breaking up a 12 million yuan manufacturing ring spread across seven provinces and cities.
Officers said yesterday that they’d received reports in May about a woman and several workers suspected to have been producing fake condoms in mass quantities out of an underground workshop Yangpu districtNetEase News report.
They sold the condoms in brand name packages to wholesalers via QQ. It’s believed the condoms had been sold across Shanghai, Henan, Anhui, Zhejiang, Hubei, Guangdong, Jiangsu and Shaanxi.
The poor-quality condoms were believed to have been distributed to small hotels and were found to contain toxic levels of heavy metal, the Food and Drug Authority said.
