Vietnamese police said they will investigate a factory that was found recycling about 320,000 used condoms for resale.
Following a tip from a local resident, Binh Duong provincial market inspectors over the weekend raided a factory near Ho Chi Minh City where they found used condoms being repacked for sale at the market.
A market inspector said the owner of the factory, a 34-year-old woman, confessed that they bought the used condoms from a man in the province.
The condoms were washed, reshaped and packed into plastic packages ready to be sold.
A Vietnamese newspaper quoted a health official as saying the recycled condoms posed an extreme health risk to users.
