Chemical

The products pose a chemical risk and can cause skin irritation due to the presence of dimethylfumarate (DMF). This substance is a fungicide used to combat mould. The substance is packed in sachets inserted in the arms and/or seats, and/or foam of the furniture. The dimethylfumarate contained in the sachet may be allergenic depending on the speed of release or the quantity released from the sachet, which then impregnates the leather of the sofa or chair.

Three incidents reported.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary withdrawal from the market and recall from consumers by the importer.

Product: Women's boots

Brand: CACHE CACHE

Name:

Type/number of model: CHAEVA 9933010 boot

Batch number/Barcode:

OECD Portal Category:

Description: The product in question is a leather boot. The exterior part of the boot is leather, originating in Portugal or South America. The interior of the boot has a textile strip originating in Italy. The upper part of the boot interior is made of a leather strip about 2 cm wide. This leather is thought to originate from China and could therefore have been treated with dimethylfumarate as there are no sachets either in the boots or the boxes. A composition label is attached to the interior of the boot marked "Made in Portugal".

Country of origin: Portugal


Click on the picture to enlarge

Chemical

The product poses a chemical risk because it contains 19 ppm dimethylfumarate (DMF). Symptoms of the allergy which can be caused by this substance are itching, redness, burning sensations, articular pain and also highly incapacitating, generalised eczema. Furthermore, it appears that the allergy resulting from contact with dimethylfumarate can, when combined with other diseases, cause chronic attacks or serious respiratory problems. The characteristics of this substance, such as its volatility which enables it to cause contamination by diffusion in surrounding products, and its ability to be permanently absorbed in finished products exposed to it, accentuate its dangerous nature.

One incident reported.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary withdrawal from the market by the distributor.
