J.C. Penney Says it Didn't Have Suppliers in Collapsed Bangladesh Factory
After it was named in a lawsuit filed by victims last week, J.C. Penney wants people to know that it had no supplier relationships with factories housed in the building that collapsed in Bangladesh two years ago, killing more than 1,000 people. Victims and families of victims of the Rana Plaza building collapse have filed suit against Wal-Mart, J.C. Penney, The Children's Place and the government of Bangladesh. When the eight-story building collapsed on April 24, 2013, 1,129 people were killed and about 2,515 were injured. Many of the victims were women and children.
