Presidential Bush's re-election campaign has come under fire for selling a campaign jacket made in Burma, whose imports have been banned by the United States.
The manufacturer of the jacket, the Spalding Group of Louisville, Kentucky has said it shipped the fleece pullover in error.
Ted Jackson, president of Spalding took the blame for the mistake, saying the Bush campaign had asked that all of its products originate from American factories.
The Bush administration has had sanctions in place since September against Burma to punish its military rulers for human rights violations.
