The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs on Monday announced a revised “List of Products Produced by Forced or Indentured Child Labor,” adding six new products from five countries.
The Departments of Labor, State and Homeland Security published a Federal Register notice updating the list that adds garments from Vietnam, along with cattle from South Sudan, dried fish from Bangladesh, fish from Ghana, and gold and wolframite from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Under the procurement regulations, federal contractors who supply products on the list must certify that they have made a good-faith effort to determine whether forced or indentured child labor was used to produce the items listed. Public comments were solicited, received and considered in the agencies’ final determination.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
