China Finds Flaws In Designer Clothing

Could some designer outfits be harmful? According to a new finding by China's Zhejiang Commerce bureau, they could be.

Shen Yan, one of the officials at the bureau, claims they collected samples from many of the department stores in some of their richest cities and found over 60% of the clothes inspected to have been poorly made or mislabeled.

Among the brands with the poor ratings were Dolce & Gabbana, Hugo Boss, Versace, and Hermes which failed quality control tests.

The inspectors found that some clothes even contained high levels of acid or formaldehyde which "could have caused skin rashes, eye irritations, allergies, respiratory problems and even cancer."

The clothes, not made in China, were found to have been made in other countries including Italy, France, Turkey, India, and Vietnam.

As for the Chinese, they're not letting this slide. Instead, officials are fining retailers who sell the tainted clothes and forcing them to remove the items.

China will not be fining the designer labels as they're aren't registered as businesses in China.

Wonder if any of the hazardous items are being sold in the US?
