EU recalls 60% more Chinese textiles & apparels in 2012
Jan '13
There was nearly 60 percent increase in the number of Chinese textiles and garments recalled by the EU in 2012.
The EU recalled a total of 565 textile and clothing items in 2012, registering a year-on-year growth of 48 percent, according to data released by EU Rapid Alert System for non-food consumer products (RAPEX).
Of the 565 products recalled by the EU, 271 were textile and apparel products made in China, up 60 percent year-on-year.
Chinese products accounted for 48 percent of all textiles and apparels recalled by the EU during 2012, compared to 44 percent in 2011.
Kidswear constituted over 80 percent of China’s textile and garment products recalled by the EU last year.
The reason for recall was mainly owing to exceeding drawstring length on children’s T-shirt, hat, waist and knees that easily fall off, leading to potential danger.
Most of the recall of Chinese textiles and apparels was made by Central and Eastern European countries.
