She would receive the goods from unknown sources and her alleged task was to clean, dry and sort the condoms before processing them to look fresh again for new customer.

Several STDs can’t be disinfected with soap and water alone hence the danger in using these condoms. Second, the risk of the condoms breaking is also increases thus heightening the risk of contracting an STD. The re-utilization of used condoms is extremely dangerous.
