Children’s clothes fail quality test

Eight batches of children’s clothing sold at large department stores and online have failed quality tests, local market regulators said yesterday.

In total, 91 batches of 46 brands were checked.

Among the substandard stuff, one batch of jeans branded Ikali sold at Shanghai New World Department Store failed for excessive carcinogenic dyes, the Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation said.

Two batches of Lacoste clothing for children, which were sold on, failed for labeling problem. A batch of overcoats branded Boboe sold on Tmall were substandard for poor color fastness to wetness.

Dye in clothing with poor fastness can bleed into the skin and is harmful, experts said.
