Report: U.S. Military Logo Clothes Made in ‘Dangerous’ Third-World Factories

ABC News reports that “U.S. military exchanges that sell clothing to service members and their families are essentially ‘flying blind’ when it comes to the sometimes deadly conditions in the third-world garment factories where military-logo clothing is made, an international labor group says in a new report.”  

“The retailers, which operate more than 1,100 stores on U.S. bases, are “sourcing their private-label clothing from factories in Bangladesh without taking any independent action to investigate or remedy safety hazards and illegal conditions,” according to a report by the International Labor Rights Forum (ILRF) provided to ABC News.”  

“The report comes just over one year after ABC News reported that activists in Bangladesh found order forms and design specs for sweatshirts and tank tops emblazoned with U.S. Marine Corps insignia and logos inside the smoldering wreckage of the Tazreen Fashions factory where more than 112 workers died in a fire.”
