AMSTERDAM – Dutch animal rights organisation, Bont voor Dieren, claims to have found unsafe levels of potentially carcinogenic chemicals in fur-trimmed children's clothing sold by several brands, including Canada Goose, Nickelson, Airforce and Woolrich. The clothing items were tested by German independent research laboratory, Bremer Umweltinstitut, and revealed levels of formaldehyde and ethoxylates which, in some cases, exceeded limits set out by the EU as well as labels such as the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. The toxins are likely to have arisen from the chemicals that are usually used in fur processing for tanning, preservation, cleaning and dyeing.
