Around the way bodegas and Harlem delis have been selling counterfeit Trojan Magnum condoms, according to company experts.
Packages of the Trojan Magnums, typically marketed toward men of color, in New York were tested and deemed counterfeit, after Trojan’s parent company, Church & Dwight, could not confirm their legitimacy.
The counterfeit condoms were actually smaller in size than tradition Trojan Magnums, and carried a strong, sweet-smelling fragrance.
