Police Raid Uncovers Facility Recycling More Than 300,000 Used Condoms
Vietnamese authorities have uncovered a huge number of used condoms that were being recycled and stocked for sale.
A facility had been set up in an apartment, where nearly 324,000 used condoms were being repackaged.
Police confiscated all of the products at the apartment, which is located in the Binh Duong Province of southern Vietnam.
Vietnamese newspaper Tuoi Tre News reports that all of the used condoms at the illegal production base were found unpackaged and unlabelled.
The owner of the facility, Pham Thi Thanh Ngoc, claimed she had received a monthly input of used condoms from an unknown person.
The condoms were then going through a process which included washing, drying and then reshaping with a dildo, in unhygienic conditions, before being put up for sale.
A couple of years ago the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention tweeted out a message aimed at sexually active Americans - advising them not to wash condoms. This is not a joke.
The agency tweeted: "Don't wash or reuse condoms. We say it, because people do it."

According to the Daily Mail, as many as three percent of people have tried to re-use condoms and the CDC want to do their job and help reduce the risk of people contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs), they also reminded everyone that prophylactics can be picked up for free at health centres and can only be used the one time.
You might think three percent (3.3 percent to be precise) isn't that many people, but there are a lot of people in the US, so that would still equate to a hefty amount of people going for round two with their rubber friend.
To give those people some credit - and the benefit of the doubt - washing condoms used to be standard practice. The Sex Pistols (appropriately enough) and Elvis Costello have even sung songs about washing condoms. But that was back in the '70s, people.
If you can't think of anything else to... umm, 'wear', then maybe find the nearest chocolate bar wrapper* like this man claimed someone did as a form of contraception.
Mark, a guest on The Jeremy Kyle Show (shock horror), asked Kyle and the audience if they 'like Toffee Crisps'. Who doesn't, right?
He then went on to reveal: "She [ex girlfriend Joanne] had sex with someone who wore a Toffee Crisp wrapper as a johnny."
Backstage, ex Joanne was adamant that she wasn't the one with the unconventional contraception practises as she said: "Actually, that wasn't me."
*DO NOT DO THIS.
