Police have recently seized 324,000 used condoms in Vietnam, which were being cleaned to be sold again.

The condom operation was being run from a warehouse in the Binh Duong province, which is in the south of Vietnam.

Workers received payment and were tasked with cleaning the rubber contraceptives. After the cleaning proses the rubbers were reshaped with the use of wooden dildos.

The condoms were then repackaged before being resold to the public. However, thousands of condoms had already been sent out to the public.

On Saturday, law enforcement raided the warehouse upon which they seized the used rubbers. Although it is not clear how many condoms had already been sold to the public, the load seized by the police weighed 360kg.

Police arrested the owner of the warehouse, Pham Thi Thanh Ngoc, 33. She claimed that she had been receiving the condoms once a month from an unknown person and added that she cleaned, dried and sorted the condoms before selling them again to the public as if they were new.

The condoms were confiscated by the police as evidence to the investigation. Police also stated that the condoms will be disposed of immediately as they are considered dangerous medical waste.

A government official claimed that the "Condoms are classified as medical items, so we will take a look at the several laws that the owner has broken."

Local reports also confirmed that the condoms that were resold, were being supplied to hotels and market stalls in close range to the warehouse.

The police are still investigating, and no more information regarding the case has been made public as yet.
