Walmart, the US retailer, has admitted and ended its relationship with the unnamed supplier who sourced goods from the Bangladesh garment factory that saw 110 workers die in a blaze in the capital, Dhaka over the weekend.

The multinational company severed ties with its supplier as anger over safety standards in Bangladesh’s clothes manufacturing industry mounts.

The 12-storey building of the Tazreen factory that housed 1,000 employees, saw at least 110 textile workers with no emergency exits die in the blazing inferno on Saturday.

We have to hope that, over 100 years since the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in NYC, Bangladesh will reform (and apply) its manufacturing regulations.
