The State Department warned U.S. companies that doing business in the Chinese region of Xinjiang could harm more than just the companies’ reputations in an attempt to crack down on forced labor and mistreatment of the minority Muslim Uighur population.

“It is critical that U.S. companies and individuals be aware of the large-scale human rights abuses perpetrated by the [People’s Republic of China] government in Xinjiang,” State Department Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment Keith Krach wrote in a letter to business leaders on Monday.
