    The owner of a US lab's under heat for falsifying SPF test results for sunscreens sold in New Zealand

    The owner of a US lab's under heat for falsifying SPF test results for sunscreens sold in New Zealand


    New-York based AMA Laboratories defrauded customers of more than 63-million dollars.

    Consumer New Zealand says its tests proved the sunscreens weren't up to standard - for years.

    But Chief Executive Jon Duffy says manufacturers still relied on the US lab to back their SPF claims.

    Consumer New Zealand's lobbying lawmakers to change sunscreen rules.
