School uniforms found unsafe in tests

SCHOOL uniforms have raised grave concerns in Shanghai after local quality authorities found cancer-causing dyes in tests just before the new semester is to start on Tuesday.

Six of the 22 batches of school uniforms examined by the Shanghai Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision failed the quality test either because they lack cotton fibers or contain toxic dyes.

School uniforms produced by Shanghai Ouxia Clothing Company, a small factory in Chuansha Town, Pudong District were found to contain the banned aromatic amine dye which can lead to cancer.

Quality supervisors are now probing the case. They said the factory had failed their quality tests three years in a row.

The Shanghai Education Commission said today that they will notify schools of the tests and urge them to choose qualified products when purchasing uniforms for students.
