I recently found a dried up used condom in a packet of kale that me and my family had been consuming.
Are we at any risk of illness or diseases? And do we need to get any tests done?

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Luckily, viruses causing diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B and C etc do not survive in dried up environments and are not spread by the oral route. If you do not have any diarrhea, vomiting or GI upsets then there is nothing more serious you should be concerned about with this.
