Wal-Mart Stores Inc. after its investigation found the Indian textile giant, Welspun India Ltd couldnâ€™t guarantee the products were legitimate has decided that it would stop selling Egyptian cotton sheets made by Welspun.
Wal-Mart spokeswoman Marilee McInnis said that Welspun has not been able to assure them the products are 100% Egyptian cotton, which is unacceptable.
The worldâ€™s biggest retailer is removing the Welspun products from U.S. store shelves and Walmart.com. Wal-Mart said that it would offer customers who purchased the products a full refund. It will donate the sheets currently on shelves.
The move is the latest blow to the Indian textile company after Target Corp last month said that it was pulling thousands of Welspunâ€™s â€œEgyptian cottonâ€ sheets from its shelves and cutting ties with the company after it found Welspun had not used actual Egyptian cotton in the products for about two years.
