Malaysian glove manufacturer Top Glove has said it is in “cordial and constructive engagement” with US Customs and Border Protection over a detention order placed on the gloves manufactured by two of its subsidiaries – Top Glove Sdn Bhd and TG Medical Sdn Bhd.

The company cites labour-related issues as the reason behind the order, but did not specify what were these issues.

Earlier this month, the company said there may be a possibility of the detention order being related to “foreign labour” issues with regard to retrospective payment of recruitment fees by its workers to agents before January 2019 without its knowledge.
