Katie Price orders probe into perfume bottle wages claim
Katie Price has ordered a "full report" into allegations of low wages paid to Indian workers making bottles for her perfume.
An investigation by The Observer newspaper centred on allegations involving workers at a Pragati Glass factory in Kosamba in the state of Gujarat.
Earlier this week, Superdrug confirmed that it had cleared Price's Stunning and Besotted fragrances from its shelves.
Glamour girl Price is thought to be worth around £30 million, thanks to a business portfolio including book deals, clothing ranges and reality TV shows.
A statement issued by Price's spokesman said the star has suspended her contract with the UK licensee.
The spokesman said: "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."
