A spokesman for Ryohin Keikaku, which operates the Muji brand, told the BBC that the company currently does not export products from Xinjiang to the US. However, the company declined to comment on whether it sells Xinjiang products in other countries. "In business activities, we comply with the laws and regulations of each country and region, and take all necessary measures to respect human rights and labor standards," the spokesman said.

The broader Prevention of Forced Uyghur Labor Act was approved by the U.S. Senate last July and the House of Representatives in December. The current president of the United States, Joe Biden, then signed the agreement into law.
Beginning Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials will stop all shipments from Xinjiang entering U.S. ports. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said it would ban goods from entering the U.S. unless the importer can "provide clear and convincing evidence that the goods were not produced through forced labor."
