New Zealand launched a probe of Chinese-made clothing after scientists found dangerous levels of formaldehyde in woolen and cotton garments.

Personally, I wouldn’t want to take the chance, and I thought that people who own fakelite jewelry might want to give the above information some serious consideration.
