NUNSPEET, the Netherlands – Shimano has voluntarily decided to recall all Pro, Shimano and Saint cycling gloves which carry a label indicating that they were made in Pakistan, or which carry no label at all.

In a press release Shimano Benelux stated that contrary to their strict contractual specifications, certain Pro, Shimano and Saint cycling gloves manufactured by Shimano’s supplier in Pakistan contain traces of Benzidine in excess of the levels specified by EU regulations. The label carrying the country of origin is located on the inside of the gloves.

Shimano advises everybody who has a pair of gloves affected by this recall, or is unsure about it, to stop using the gloves immediately, and should either visit a Shimano- / Pro-dealer or visit Shimano’s website in order to get details on how to obtain a refund.
