Scandal-hit Malaysian Surgical Glove Maker Says US Lifts Ban
Kuala Lumpur, Sept 10 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th Sep, 2021 ) :Malaysia's Top Glove said Friday the United States has lifted an import ban imposed over forced labour allegations, a boost for the world's top surgical glove maker after multiple scandals.
The firm said the agency had updated its findings after receiving additional information, allowing it to resume exports.
"Top Glove remains committed to the health, safety and well being of its people," it said in a statement.
In an initial probe last year, CBP said it suspected there was evidence of debt bondage, excessive overtime, and abusive working and living conditions in Top Glove's production processes.
Thousands of workers were infected with Covid-19 last year when outbreaks hit their overcrowded dormitories. The company has pledged to improve its workers' living conditions.
