- The signs appeared in a Liverpool shop recalling two types of Durex condoms

An outdated condom recall sparked concern among shoppers this week, claiming the product would burst during sex.
Signs appeared in a Liverpool shop urging customers to check their Durex Real Feel and Durex Latex Free contraception.
Customers were urged to check the batch number on the bottom of the pack and on the foil wrapping of individual condoms.
But the condom manufacturer said today that the affected products had already been recalled in July and were no longer on sale.
