Recently bought a pair of socks - Made In China- ankles erupted in blisters and sores.
Have women friend who developed bad skin rash-cotton bra-Made in China.
People I know who developed Melanoma cancer wonder if it was caused by Made In China

Am wondering if their are other stories.
Skin Cancer from Made In China clothing!

Suspect that their is a covert conspiracy from China to develop covert weaponry using
clothing to give US citizens skin diseases and death causing melanoma cancer.

Personally I will never buy 'Made In China' clothing ever again.
I don't trust the Black Ops of China and their experimentation on the US populace.

Why are politicians doing nothing while US citizens are guinea pigs in death thru clothing
covert operation from China?

Hmmm....makes me think of the blankets infected with smallpox. I suppose it could be a biowarfare tactic----chemically laden in clothes. But wouldn't it wash out?

Don't you wash new clothes before you wear them?

Normally I do wash my clothes before wearing them but when I'm on the road
and traveling I wear socks and undies from the package.
Motels and hotels -you know how it is.

Biowarfare-that's the name for it!

Well at least give them a good rinse in the sink and air dry.

I try to wear mostly cotton and american made clothing myself, and I always wash ti first.

It's not just clothes it's everything they make.

At best the products are junk and break and and need to be replaced too soon at worst they are toxic.

This problem as happened with candy, tainted food, clothes, hazardous toys and appliances.

There is no where near the level of control and safety we have and there are far too many people producing to monitor effectively.

Chinese goods simply do not match the quality of the rest of Asia yet.

Given the trade deficit, the quality and chance for harm I wouldn't advise buying anything from China

Conspiracy against us?


Just crap

Everything you own is poisonous, because everything you buy comes from a mass-production facility that doesn't care about you, at all. In fact, they probably do it intentionally just to spite you and every other person.

We probably get cancer from simply looking at the stuff we have in our homes.

The US is no different. The United States probably has the most toxic food supply in the entire world. Actually, I know it does, it's not even worth speculating.

The hell with Chinese junk products. I was at the VA hospital the other day. I had time to spare between a lab draw and my appointment. So I wandered down to the basement to the PX, or whatever it's called. While I didn't use scientific methods, I figure about 85% of the products for sale in the store were made in China. And they were overpriced.

Socks that harm your feet? yikes!

Maybe the managers of the sock factory in China will do the honorable thing and commit suicide, before the Chinese government does it for them.

Am wondering if their are other stories.

A New Zealand TV station programme did a piece on this subject in 2007.

TV3's Target programme will this week detail how scientists found formaldehyde in woollen and cotton clothes at levels 500 times higher than is safe.


What is the International research on formaldehyde exposure ?

International research supported by the World Health Organisation shows exposure to formaldehyde in concentrations of 20 parts per million (ppm) can cause eye, skin and nasal irritations, respiratory problems, asthma and cancer.


The real cost of cheap clothing could ultimately be our health ...

Europe had banned 22 aromatic amine dyes which were known carcinogens. But Target investigations showed 10% of clothes tested in China contained them

Don't have a link,but was part of a conversation among importers a while back.

Though cotton, wool, linen listed on clothing contents, much of the material used is non-safety tested synthetics. Pull a few threads away and put a match to them and see.

Formaldehyde is just one of many chemicals used to delouse and otherwise prevent insects from getting into materials, laying eggs, larvae, etc.

The Chines operate an a very thin profit margin and these measures are done to keep within budget,

Designers and workers are rewarded for finding new ways to cut conerners.

Dyes are used that are no longer permitted due to toxicity. Was it Red Dye #2 that was considered dangerous?

Chines unlike Japanese or Koreans have little cultural concern for health and quality standards.

THey were better at philosophy and warfare in their day.

I have seen a lot of clothes at Wal-mart from china the last couple years sown with substandard thread and once you wear them and wash them a few times the sewing starts to fall apart.

There is also the problem with flammable fabrics being used in children's clothes that has been treated to make them less flammable till they are washed a few times. Then they become flammable.(some of the chemical used to beat the government requirement are themselves toxic.)

The US government can not test every shipment to prove they meet safty requirement and the Chinese know this.

Plus its hard to sue small stores because all they have to show is that the company they bought the product from claimed it was safe.

That leads to trying to sue the Chinese company that made the product and that in itself is imposable.

I had a pair of coveralls that were labeled Nomex flame resistance.
to this day i don't know what they are really made from but it was not Nomex as a burning cigarette ash burned right through them.

All we have to do is drop mobile casinos on every town in China as retaliation!

Where I live the Chinese have cut back on gambling. Maybe the measured how much they put in and how much that took out.

What will happen in natural business evolution is the company's that supply better quality goods from China will cobber their cheating competition. All a matter of time before this happens. The wildcatting days of getting away with murder should end soon. I hope.

Meantime China has to deal with it's own economy imploding. They're not growing at the rate they pretend. India in fact is better positioned to lead the way as the Chines fumble their lead.

I find this strange. People say the WHO lies when it comes to things like vaccines and other medications known to cause serious physical harm, hell there's umpteen thread on this very site dedicated to just that, yet when it comes to bashing on someone, the WHO are suddenly the authoritative source on everything that is good for you. You can't have it both ways.

I've bought just as much crap in the US as I have stuff from China, yet oddly enough most of my "Made in China" crap still works. (Made in the USA is an international joke and pretty much on par with "Made in China").

As for the poisonous clothes, if you are that bothered, have them tested and file a class action suit against the retailer.

Great links - thanks.

As many are saying it could be that China is just careless and makes crap.
Careless means not looking out for others and lacking compassion.
China has clown politicians who don't even care about their own citizens
never mind the atrocities they are causing in Tibet.

For now on I'm going to pay the extra and buy US made organic cotton (no pesticides)
and hemp clothing.
I've been eyeing the hemp clothes at local stores awhile now.
A bit expensive but better quality and design.
Made in USA by happy stoners.

I am in a position to closely observe Chinese clothing production...
...they will produce whatever is specified.

The wool Formaldehyde problem was the result of western fashion firms demanding ridiculous prices, so low-quality fabrics were used...
...and Formaldehyde is used to 'improve' the feel of cheap wool.

Most local labels use Chinese or South-East Asian factories anyway...
...and even when made locally the fabrics are usually sourced from there...
...they just manage the specification and quality control a little better.
