A U.S. congressional investigation released Monday found that carmakers BMW, Jaguar Land Rover and Volkswagen had used components from a Chinese supplier banned in the United States over alleged forced labor ties.

The report by the Senate Finance Committee said BMW had produced and imported vehicles with parts "presumptively made with forced labor," while Jaguar Land Rover imported parts with the same issues.

VW made vehicles for the U.S. market with such components too, and has "ongoing business ties" to manufacturing in China's northwestern Xinjiang region, the report said.
