Dear Rob,
Thank you for letting us know about the shirts. I forwarded your e
mail to our buying department. There is a notice going to all stores to
pull these shirts off of the floor and destroy them.
Thanks again for letting us know about this situation.

Is it Walmart policy to sell “recalled” products to outlet stores? Or is there a special policy specifically for cases like this?

Leaving the issue of Walmart selling Nazi paraphernalia aside for a moment, the saga of the Walmart Nazi T-shirt has taught us a lot about the life cycle of a recalled product, and none of it is good.
