HANOI, Vietnam – Police seized more than 320,000 used condoms that had been prepared for illegal resale at a Vietnamese factory near Ho Chi Minh City after a raid Saturday.

State news broadcaster VTV reports that a woman believed to be the owner of the Binh Duong province factory was arrested.

VTV footage of the bust showed large bags of the pre-owned prophylactics that reportedly weighed a combined 794 pounds.

Workers at the factory allegedly washed the condoms and reshaped them to be sold again. The owner admitted she received a regular supply of the used condoms from an unidentified man, according to Tuoi Tre News, the state-run newspaper.

All of the condoms weren’t yet labeled or packaged.
