Recently, there was spread one pretty disturbing information that hair band made of reprocessed condoms in China are massively sold in the stores all over America. Aside from being sold at local swap meets and flea markets, the recycled condoms have been found at local beauty salons all across the country. The concerns about public safety have been raised.
These hair ties are being sold at local beauty salons across the country as well as many swap meets and flea markets. A big concern is the spread of AIDS, genital warts and other STD’s. The CDC has released a definite expression of the case about hair ties:
“The amount of bacteria and potential viruses on these hair ties and rubber bands, which are made from used unsanitary condoms, has 4 times the bacteria found on a public restroom toilet. Consumers could potentially be infected with AIDS, warts, herpes and other venereal diseases if they hold the rubber bands or hair ties in their mouths while setting their hair. We warn against consumers purchasing these products if they were made in China.”
One Los Angeles citizen became disgusted after buying the hair ties at a local beauty salon, and also after learning that she had actually bought used condom material.
-This is her statement:
“When I heard about this I couldn’t believe it. I got the scissors and carefully cut around the edges. When I saw the used condom inside and I almost gagged. I hope the word gets out so people can stop using these hair ties made from China.”
If you have bought hair ties made in Chine, you should toss them immediately. These hair ties could cause the spread of disease.
These can be a health hazard and we should all be careful.
