The Kardashians may get themselves involved in a heck of a lot of scandals, but the family (smartly) doesn't want any part of this one.

The ladies are shooting down a Star magazine report saying they use "slave labor" to produce their fashions in overseas "sweatshops."

Charles Kernaghan, executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, was quoted in the article seemingly supporting the claim; however, he told TMZ.com that his quotes were taken out of context.

Kardashian mom-ager Kris Jenner said the factories are "strictly policed."
