No surprise from a country that has poisoned over 13,000 of their own children from inferior food manufacturing.
Just think of the many people who held those hair things in their mouths while they pulled their hair up to secure it!

I don't see why it's so gross... they say they are using the factory rejects... it gets confusing but it seems pretty clear they aren't using actually USED condoms... How would they even GET used condoms? lol

if you read the last paragraph it said "it was confirmed that rubber bands had been fashioned from bits of used and abandoned or low-quality condoms rejected by the factory"

that is what is disgusting. Don't know and don't want to know where they are getting the used and abandoned condoms.
