New Zealand Clarifies Incorrect Report On Chinese Clothing

According to a representative from the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China, the New Zealand authorities have delivered a test report on garments made by China to the Chinese Embassy in New Zealand and said that there is no problem with China-made clothes and they are safe to wear.

Liz MacPherson, general manager of New Zealand's Ministry of Consumer Affairs, reported the test results in a meeting with Liu Linlin, business counselor at the Chinese Embassy in New Zealand. MacPherson says that media in New Zealand has been reporting on Chinese products' problems in recent two months, but through checks, they've found that only one Chinese-made clothing out of the 84 in total contain excessive formaldehyde, and the chemical will reduce by about one-quarter of the standard value after the first wash. In addition, the tags on the clothes already say that they need to be washed before wearing, so there is no problem with the clothing.

MacPherson says New Zealand will formally release a test report on Chinese clothing to clarify the untrue reports made by the media.
