BHS jumper discovered with Asda label
UK department store chain BHS is understood to have launched an investigation after one of its customers discovered an item of clothing with the label of supermarket retailer Asda in it.
The discovery was made in a grey knit top from a BHS store in Milton Keynes UK. The customer found a BHS washing instructions label glued over an Asda label.
A spokesperson for BHS said the item in question was labelled incorrectly by its supplier, which also produces clothing for a number of retailers.
"All affected items were recalled as soon as the error was discovered but unfortunately a small amount had been sold before the recall. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused," the spokesperson said.
