Germany-based Jack Wolfskin and adidas have confirmed adding PHOA, but adidas insisted that its products don't pose health risks because the amount used is minimal.

Jack Wolfskin has promised to use a safer replacement before 2015 while adidas has pledged a "zero discharge of hazardous chemicals" policy in 2020, the paper said.

In July 2011, Greenpeace accused some top clothing brands that rely on Chinese suppliers of polluting rivers with heavy metals and PFCs.

Adidas, Nike, Calvin Klein, Lacoste, Abercrombie and Fitch, and China's Li Ning were among the brands identified following an investigation focusing on two major suppliers, the Youngor Textile Complex in the Yangtze River Delta and the Well Dyeing Factory Ltd in the Pearl River Delta.

The brands mentioned later confirmed they buy products from one of the two suppliers.
