KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) -- Malaysia's Top Glove said on Thursday its glove production has been affected because of a U.S. ban on its products over allegations they are made with forced labor.

Two units of the world's largest producer of latex gloves were banned by the United States in July last year. And last month, U.S. authorities said the ban now extended to all disposable gloves made by Top Glove in Malaysia.
