US panel approves duties on washers from Mexico, South Korea

WASHINGTON Wed Jan 23, 2013 11:18am EST

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. trade panel on Wednesday gave final approval to anti-dumping duties on hundreds of millions of dollars of residential washing machines from Mexico and South Korea in a case brought by American manufacturer Whirlpool (WHR.N).

The U.S. International Trade Commission voted 6-0 that the century-old U.S. manufacturer had been materially harmed, or at least was threatened with material injury, by the imports.
