People 'burned' by leather sofas

27th June 2008

Lawyers have urged trading standings authorities to take action over the claims of people in the UK who say they developed rashes from leather sofas they purchased.

The sofas, which were made in China, were treated with a fungicide. Christian Shotton, of solicitors Russell, Jones and Walker, said: "Trading standards haven't taken an approach and assisted or forced these retailers - as they can do - to remove the sofas from these people's houses and stop people from getting hurt."
