As reported by AFP on Thursday (2 July 2020), the products are part of a shipment weighing 13 tons and worth the US $ 800 thousand from Lop County Meixin Hair Product Co. US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) ordered on June 17 that products from the company were detained, on the grounds that the products were made involving prisoners and forced laborers, including children.

"The production of these items leads to very serious human rights violations," said Executive Assistant Commissioner for Commerce at CBP, Brenda Smith.

"The detention order is intended to give a clear and direct message to all entities that want to do business with the United States, that illegal and inhumane practices will not be tolerated in the US supply network," he stressed.

Lop County Meixin Co. is the third Xinjiang human hair exporter to be blacklisted in recent weeks for using forced labor. This kind of human hair is usually used for plaiting or hair extensions.

This announcement was made when the Department of Foreign Affairs, Department of Commerce, Ministry of Finance, and Department of Homeland Security warned US businesses to be careful in importing goods through supply networks that involved forced labor in Xinjiang and in any location in China.
