Jordan orders perfume probe after slave wages to Indian workers claim
London: Katie Price aka Jordan has ordered an enquiry into allegations of low wages paid to Indian workers making bottles for her perfume.
The former glamour model`s perfumes were ditched by retail chain Superdrug after it was reported that Indian workers making the bottles were paid just 2.05 pounds a day.
An investigation by The Observer newspaper centred on allegations involving workers at a Pragati Glass factory in Kosamba in the state of Gujarat.
However, a statement issued by Price`s spokesman said the star has withdrawn her agreement with the UK licensee.
"When The Observer`s claims about low wages at the Indian perfume bottle manufacturer were brought to Katie`s attention, she suspended her contract with the UK licensee, and asked it to provide her with a full written report on the low wages allegations. She now awaits that report," the Mirror quoted the spokesman as saying.
