Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Boys’ and Men’s Jeans are subject to this recall:

  • Rivers Doghouse Boys’ Jeans; style: 058BYJNS; colour: black
  • Rivers Men’s Jeans; styles: 300MJENR and 300MJENL; colours: black and indigo
  • Rivers Men’s Jeans; styles 567MJEAN and 568MJEAN; colours: black and dark denim
  • Rivers Men’s Jeans; styles 412MJENR and 412MJENL; colour: black

According to the ACCC, the dye used during the manufacture of the pocket lining of these Jeans may have contained hazardous azo-colourants. Expert authorities classify these azo-colourants as carcinogens and recommend that exposure be minimised. While this dye is not banned for textiles use in Australia, Rivers Australia is recalling these two styles of Jeans as a precaution.
