Proving once again that chastity is the best defense against AIDS

South Africa recalls millions of condoms

The Health Ministry said Tuesday the recall involves condoms distributed free by the government.

It follows a scandal in which the South African company Zalatex was found to have bribed an official of the South African Bureau of Standards to approve defective condoms. After the scandal broke in August, the government ordered 20 million condoms to be recalled or held at the factory. Only 12 million have been recovered.

Someone will rationalize it's the pope's fault somewhere. It sure can't be the fault of the people who won't keep their pants zipped up.
