Online retailer Amazon has pulled products off the marketplace bearing the slogan "Slavery gets s--t done," reports Reuters.
The slogan appeared on a range of products including clothing and mugs, and were being offered by third-party sellers. Amazon U.K. pulled all of the products featuring the slogan, but bags were still available on Amazon's U.S.-based site as of Monday.
Amazon released a statement saying, “All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account. The products in question are no longer available.”
According to the United Nations International Labour Organization (ILO) and human rights group Walk Free Foundation, more than 40 million people were living as modern slaves in 2017.
