Condom users beware millions of Lifestyles brand condoms have been recalled due to customer complaints filed in the U.S..
Western's Student Health Services education coordinator Cindy Camp said she was informed by the Public Health Unit the condoms were being recalled because they were found to deteriorate before the end of their shelf life.
The following Lifestyle condoms are subject to recall:
¥Ultra sensitive with spermicide, expiring Oct. 1997

Camp said any of these condoms can be returned to the place of purchase for a replacement. The following brands students may have received from SHS if so, check the lot number and return them to SHS for an exchange, Camp said.

Students can commemorate Kristallnacht today in the University Community Centre atrium at 12:30 p.m. with Western's Jewish Students' Union.
President Julie Greenspoon said there will be singing, poetry readings and a glass breaking ceremony to remember the night during World War II when Nazis broke the windows of Jewish-owned stores and destroyed synagogues.
A large piece of glass with the word "hate" written on it will be shattered and there will also be a reading from a Holocaust survivor, Greenspoon added.
