“China Quality” T-Shirts Burn Paddle-Boarders


A national stand-up paddleboarding tournament held in Kanagawa has gone awry as the free T-shirts given out at the event have given 24 victims nasty burns and rashes, with one case being so extreme the individual had to be hospitalized.

T-shirts were being handed out by the tournaments organizers – Stand Up Paddle Union Japan – as a show of good will, only to unfortunately backfire, as apparently an unknown chemical residue remained on them.

One of the participants who wore a shirt shared his thoughts on the experience:

“thought the T-shirt felt a little slimy after I got out of the water. My back became covered in blisters and it hurt. I can’t sleep well either because it’s my back.”

News coverage of the incident:

It has been mentioned that at least 360 shirts had to be hastily returned, leading inevitably to questions over where exactly the clothing was sourced…

    Don't be an idiot. The daily stuff is designed by western companies and only assembled in China. It has to be made according to the western companies' strict design specifications and methods, pass all the requirements etc.

    There are no such requirements when Chinese companies are left to do their own thing... they can and will poison, burn, wound and generally fuck the public for their own financial gain.

    ^ This guy gets it.

    Frankly, if their mindset is such that they're willing to poison baby milk even to get more dollars, should we be surprised at anything less?

    If your Note 7 is made in China you're lucky, if it is in Vietnam or Korea it does not print money anymore.

    Now that's not fair, the junk and styrofoam bridge did not explode so it's not every single thing.

    Dude this accident happened in Japan.
    Japan never had exploding incident except nuclear reactor.

    And where in the story states those t-shirts come from China?
    It doesn't make sense an event held in Japan by Japanese company use t-shirt from China.

    Most likely they didn't wash them and there was some chemical used on them while in storage.

    That's probably the real reason. I've bought plenty souvenir T-shirts all over USA, Europe and the near east (my sister collects them) and plenty of them had a tag saying "chemically treated for storage, wash before wearing" and similar warnings.

    This is why you always wash new clothes before wearing them, doesn't matter where the damn things are manufactured.
