HA NOI (VNS)– The liquid solution and small white particles found in imported bras that allegedly caused skin irritations are not harmful to women, announced the Ha Noi Market Watch Department yesterday.

The announcement was made after tests carried out on the bras by the Criminological Institute under the Police's Anti-Crime Department.

The viscous sticky liquid solution found in the bras was determined to be seal oil and the white particles were polystyrene composite, all were not harmful to humans, said vice head of the department Vuong Tri Dung.

Late last month, the detection of the mystery liquid and particles in cheap imported bras on sale at local markets caused public concern. The city's market watch department confiscated hundreds of bras in Dong Xuan Market and from shops on Hang Dao Street, Hoan Kiem District.

The seized bras carry several brand names, many are Hunshi, while some are fake Wacoal brand bras, a famous Japanese label. All of the items were sold without any certificates and legal receipts. – VNS
