Retailer shelves radioactive belts

Online fashion retailer Asos has withdrawn a batch of metal-studded belts from sale after they were found to be radioactive.

The leather belts could cause injury to the wearer if worn for more than 500 hours and are being held in a radioactive storage facility after testing positive for Cobalt-60, according to an internal report. One of the belts was pulled by US border control and tested positive.
