Commerce Commission prosecutes for false claims on bedding

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 24 May 2017

Princess Wool is prosecuted and fined nearly $200,000 for claiming its duvets are 'pure alpaca wool' or '100% cashmere' when they in fact contain little no such fibres. It brings the total fines imposed in 11 cases to $1.5 million against companies and individuals who made claims about alpaca, merino wool and cashmere duvets. We talk to the Commerce Commission about this.
