Beware when you are traveling to
China, or buying cheap things in your country!!
just try to be careful when you are buying Hair bands and Gums
the road, who knows what it is made from??
These Hairbands were made from used condoms and threads.
That was so disgusting, I would not want to use them!!
BEIJING (AFP) - Used condoms are being recycled into hair bands in southern
China , threatening to spread sexually-transmittable diseases they were
originally meant to prevent, state media reported Tuesday
In the latest example of potentially harmful Chinese-made products, rubber hair
bands have been found in local markets and beauty salons in Dongguan and
Guangzhou cities in southern Guangdong province, China Daily newspaper said.
'These cheap and colourful rubber bands and hair ties sell well ... threatening
the health of local people,' it said.
Despite being recycled, the hair bands could still contain bacteria and viruses,
'People could be infected with AIDS, (genital) warts or other diseases if they
hold the rubber bands or strings in their mouths while waving their hair into
plaits or buns,' the paper quoted a local dermatologist who gave only his
surname, Dong, as saying.
A bag of ten of the recycled bands sells for just 25 fen (three cents), much
cheaper than others on the market, accounting for their popularity, the paper
A government official was quoted as saying recycling condoms was illegal.
China 's manufacturing industry has been repeatedly tarnished this year by a
string of scandals involving shoddy or dangerous goods made for both domestic
and foreign markets.
In response, it launched a public relations blitz this summer aimed at playing
up efforts to strengthen monitoring systems.
