A six-year-old schoolgirl from Tooting, south London opened her box of cards to distribute them to friends and found the following message: “We are foreign prisoners in Shanghai Qinqpu prison China.

“Forced to work against our will. Please help us and notify human rights organization, ”the message added, according to The Sunday Times.

A Tesco spokeswoman said the company was “shocked” and had shut down operations at the facility.

“We would never allow prison labor in our supply chain,” she said.

“We were shocked by these allegations and immediately halted production at the factory where these cards are produced and launched an investigation.

“We have a comprehensive auditing system in place and this supplier was independently audited as recently as last month and no evidence was found to suggest they had broken our rule banning the use of prison labor.

“If evidence is found we will permanently de-list the supplier.”
