The unnamed man said the three failed to protect consumers by branding Zoom Condoms with the quality mark of assurance.

In the affidavit, he says that on 13 October 2014, he began to notice some rashes on his genitals and pain while urinating.

He says he suffered a mental breakdown and become an alcoholic. His condition also led him to lose both his family and job.
