Apparel brands found to have harmful contents

A spot check was recently conducted by the Guangzhou Industrial & Commercial Bureau on a number of Chinese and foreign brands.

Investigation was done essentially to check the quality of 100 batches of leisure clothes of such popular brands like Adidas, Nike, Esprit, Only and Snoopy.

Inspection on goods largely included leisure trousers, jackets, T-shirts, jeans, jersey and such other garments.

Result of the investigation revealed that only 46 percent of the total goods were qualified and the remaining were found to have defects like high PH value which crossed the standard of 4 to 7.5.

Moreover, the formaldehyde content of brands like Lawman also exceeded the national standards. Besides, 15 batches of garments were found to have decomposable aromatic amine dye which causes cancer. In fact, the content of this chemical was 10 times more than what is normally prescribed.

Inspection of this kind were made even earlier by the Shanghai Industrial & Commercial Bureau but at that time this decomposable aromatic amine content was not found in the apparels under check.

The need to have such regular scrutiny on goods is pressing and the Government must play its part by ensuring that goods meant for exports and even those circulated within the domestic boundaries qualify the set standards.
