H&M has suspended production of all angora products following reports by animal-rights campaigners of routine abuse on rabbits farms in China. The Swedish retailer’s decision appears to have been made in the wake of recent undercover footage, obtained by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, that shows rabbits screaming in pain as the fur is ripped from their skins. “H&M will immediately stop the production of all angora products until we have secured that our strict product policy is being followed,” the world’s second-largest apparel firm said in a press release Wednesday. “H&M doesn’t accept that animals are treated badly, which is checked when audits are made.”
