STATEWIDE - A couple colleges in Maine are pulling sports apparel off the shelves after it was allegedly linked to slave labor.

It was brought to the attention of UMaine that clothes from Badger Sportsware were coming from forced factory labor at a Chinese internment camp.

Following those reports, a UMaine spokesperson says a hoodie, pants, jacket, and two t-shirt designs were removed from UMaine's book store as of Tuesday.

The spokesperson says UMaine is an affiliate of the Fair Labor Association and follows their code of conduct.
