Health officials in Australia have recalled 285,000 glow-in-the-dark condoms after discovering that the condoms had holes in them or tended to break under pressure. The Therapeutic Goods Administration ordered the condoms off the shelves after tests showed that a high percentage of the condoms failed in standard safety tests. "Clearly, condoms that develop holes pose a significant public health risk as they can increase the likelihood of transmission of STDs, including HIV and hepatitis C," Trish Worth, parliamentary health secretary, told Agence France-Presse.
