US seizes shipment of disposable gloves from Malaysia's Top Glove

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said on Wednesday it seized a shipment of disposable gloves from Malaysia’s Top Glove Corp Bhd estimated to be worth $518,000, on indications they were made by forced labour.

The U.S. agency did not give a date for the seizure of the 3.97 million nitrile gloves, which comes after it detained imports from two of Top Glove‘s subsidiaries last July, saying it had found reasonable suspicion of forced labour.
