Apple Announces Supplier Audits

Fair Labor Association has begun audits of Foxconn’s factories in China.

Apple Inc. said the Fair Labor Association started audits of supplier Foxconn Technology Group’s factories in China, the first inspections of a larger effort to respond to criticism of conditions of workers making its gadgets.

The iPhone maker, which became the first technology company to join Washington-based FLA in January, said labor-rights inspectors started today at a Shenzhen, China, plant known as Foxconn City.
