US bans Chinese products believed to be made by forced labor

The U.S. government on Monday announced an import ban on some items from China that it believes are produced with “state-sponsored forced labor.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection issued five withhold release orders on Tuesday, which are issued when the agency has reason to believe products imported may be made in whole – or part – by forced labor (including convict labor, child labor and indentured labor).

As a result, these products, are not allowed to be imported into the country.

The products are manufactured in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and include certain hair products, apparel, cotton exports and computer parts.

“By taking this action, DHS is combating illegal and inhumane forced labor, a type of modern slavery, used to make goods that the Chinese government then tries to import into the United States,” acting DHS deputy secretary Ken Cuccinelli said in a statement. “When China attempts to import these goods into our supply chains, it also disadvantages American workers and businesses.”
