Expiry labelling proposed for latex condoms
This article was originally published in Clinica
The US FDA is proposing that manufacturers of latex condoms include the expiry date on their product labelling. Based on evidence that ageing affects the latex barrier properties of condoms that prevent the transmission of infectious agents, the FDA believes that latex condoms should not be used after the expiry date. This would be established through subjecting products to certain ageing condition environments before performing tests to demonstrate physical and mechanical integrity.
