Nike, Adidas, Shein, Temu Sent Letter From House China Committee About Forced Labor

The Republican and Democratic Party leaders of the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) sent letters to the CEOs of two American companies and two Chinese companies on Tuesday asking them about forced labor and banned cotton products in the goods they sell to U.S. consumers.

At the heart of the matter is whether the apparel companies are in compliance with the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, signed into law by President Biden in Dec. 2021. Cotton from East Turkistan, where the majority of Uyghur Muslims live, has been banned since last year following restrictions on cotton products by at least one East Turkistan-based company in 2021 by Customs.

Each of the four letters — sent to Adidas, NikeNKE -0.5%, Shein and Temu — began with the same opening paragraph. What followed were more precise issues related to the individual companies.
