According to a post from the country’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, a total of 12,305 items produced by foreign clothing brands failed to reach the watchdog’s quality standards. However, it didn’t give any indication on what precisely the problems were.  Common quality problems found in clothes include color fastness, fiber content, and pH index, problems which could cause allergy and skin irritation.
