U.S. customs officials said they were seizing products from Chinese sportswear brands Li Ning on the grounds that they used North Korean labor.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection said through its website on the 15th that from the 14th onwards, all US ports manufactured or produced by Lining were seized, according to CBP investigations indicating that Lining was using North Korean labor in its supply chain. .
CAATSA said it would prohibit the importation of goods into the United States from anywhere in the world of North Korean citizens or North Korean nationals, unless there is clear evidence that it was not produced through forced labor.
Founded after Li Ning, a Chinese Olympic gymnast hero, Li Ning has grown rapidly in the Chinese market thanks to Chinas patriotic consumption. In March of last year, many foreign brands declared that they would not use cotton grown in the region, accusing Uyghurs of human rights violations, but Li Ning insisted on using cotton from Xinjiang.
As a result, Nike and Adidas, which said they would not use Xinjiang cotton, suffered a sharp drop in sales due to a boycott of Chinese consumers, but Li Ning overtook Nike and Adidas in sales within weeks of the Xinjiang cotton incident.
Hong Kongs South China Morning Post reported that the United States has been cracking down on Chinese clothing products in recent years, but most have been linked to allegations of human rights abuses in Xinjiang.
