What are the defects?
The dye used during the manufacturing of the pocket lining of these jeans may have contained hazardous azo-colourants.
What are the hazards?
Expert authorities classify these azo-colourants as carcinogens and recommend that exposure is minimised. While these dyes are not banned for textile use within Australia, Jeanswest is initiating this action as it does not meet our strict quality assurance standards.
