China-made card has a message from prisoner – News

“We abhor the use of prison labour and would never allow it in our supply chain,” a Tesco spokesman said on Sunday.

British supermarket giant Tesco suspended a Chinese supplier of Christmas cards on Sunday after a Press report said a customer found a message written inside a card saying it had been packed by foreign prisoners who were victims of forced labour.

“We abhor the use of prison labour and would never allow it in our supply chain,” a Tesco spokesman said on Sunday.

“We were shocked by these allegations and immediately suspended the factory where these cards are produced and launched an investigation. We have also withdrawn these cards from sale whilst we investigate.”

The Sunday Times said the message inside the card read: “We are foreign prisoners in Shanghai Qingpu Prison China. Forced to work against our will. Please help us and notify human rights organisation. Use the link to contact Mr Peter Humphrey.” Peter Humphrey is a British former journalist and corporate fraud investigator.

The cards were produced at the Zheijiang Yunguang Printing factory, about 100km from Shanghai Qingpu prison, Tesco said.
