A spokesman for Walmart, which owns Asda, has given the following statement regarding the fire at a garment factory in Bangladesh:
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families involved on the tragedy at Aswad Composite Mills. We are working to understand the facts and will take appropriate action based on our findings.
A deputy manager for Aswad Composite Mills told ITV News that George - a brand name used by Asda in the UK - was among the brands who used the factory.
As British companies reluctantly admitted they were linked to the latest factory fire in Bangladesh yesterday, a wider problem was revealed.
ITV News has revealed how six British brands were indirectly linked to a factory in Bangladesh that burned down, killing nine people.
The deputy manager of the factory where nine garment workers were killed said six British high street brands used Aswad Composite Mills.
