ERJ staff report (DS)
Tianjin, China -- Kumho Tyres has reportedly apologised to Chinese consumers and recalled tyres in China after admitting it used too much recycled rubber in its tyres. A week ago, China Central Television broadcast a report accusing the company of over-using recycled rubber in an effort to save money. Kumho initially denied the reports, and sent a team to investigate. It has now reportedly found that the allegations were largely justified, and apologised to the Chinese people.
"We will recall all the flawed products as soon as possible," the company reportedly said in the statement.
The China Business Journal reported that the State quality supervision authorities have withdrawn quality certification from Kumho, which will cause a production halt for some car models.
