'Chinese apparel firms must study US recall dynamics'
Oct '13
In recent years, China’s apparel exporters are frequently receiving recall notification by the US, as America continues to improve its consumer product safety standards.
The export recall causes huge loss to Chinese apparel enterprises, and in view of the same, the Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau has asked the relevant enterprises to be highly concerned about the US recall dynamics, especially those related to children’s apparel.
The Bureau has asked Chinese firms to improve the level of self-checks, in strict accordance with the design, production, testing and other requirements of the US customs.
According to statistics, in the first half of 2013, there were 13 incidents of Chinese clothing and accessories recall by the US, involving a total volume of around 1 million pairs. Of these, 12 cases involved recall of children’s clothing.
Of these recalled products, five were due to non-compliance of a requirement that states that clothing meant for children below 3 years of age should not contain small objects that may result in suffocation, inhalation or ingestion.
Four children’s sleepwear products were recalled as they failed to meet children’s sleepwear flammability standards.
Two children’s upper outerwear clothing were recalled because of a neck or waist drawstring that was too long or did not meet the ASTM F1816-97 standard.
