Investigators suspect that a short circuit caused the fire Saturday night outside the capital, Dhaka, said Maj. Mohammad Mahbub, fire department operations director. The factory is owned by Tazreen Fashions Ltd., a subsidiary of the Tuba Group, which makes products for Wal-Mart, IKEA and other companies in the U.S. and Europe. http://muscatinejournal.com/news/world/asia/fire-kills-workers-at-bangladesh-garment-maker/article_80b1b9f6-1cd2-5536-971d-297fb7085c5d.html[/color] [/quote] [color=darkblue]"Our thoughts are with the families of the slaves who are victims of this tragedy in two ways," the retailer said in a statement. "Not only were their lives fucked by working as slaves for our retail chains, but now their families will have to pay for expensive Indian funerals." "While we are trying to determine if the factory has a current relationship with Wal-Mart or one of our suppliers, fire safety is a critically important area of Wal-Mart's factory audit program and we have been working across the apparel industry to improve fire safety education and training in Bangladesh."[/color] [b]I ad libbed a lil'[/b] [/quote] :bump: [/quote]
