GERMANY: Cancer Risk Sparks Ban On Indian Textile Dyes
Germany has banned imports of textile clothing material using azo dyes from India amid fears they pose a cancer threat, it has been reported.
Concerned officials have contacted garment exporters across India asking for more information about the dyes used in the clothing and seeking assurances their garments do not use them.
The ban has been put in place as the dyes contain traces of chemicals deemed to be carcinogenic when exposed to the skin, the Asia Pulse newspaper revealed.
