China Warns Consumers of Potential Hazards Related to Children’s Clothing

June 17, 2016

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (ASQIQ) has released a warning for garments intended for babies and children.

The notice highlights common hazards such as suffocation from accessory items, including zippers and buttons, that may be ingested or inhaled by children.

Drawstrings also pose a suffocation hazard as they may become tangled or caught in protrusions or gaps on furniture, elevators, transport tools or slides.

The bulletin was released on May 20, 2016.
