Listed as “MPI MD Shape,” the $1.92 item is notable for its “state shape,” according to the product description. Users on Twitter didn’t agree.
A spokeswoman for MPI, the item’s manufacturer, said in an email that Maryland’s shape is difficult to recreate on their equipment.
“While we understand it does not look exactly like the state, we are somewhat limited with our ability for intricate detail (which Maryland has a lot of!) due to the machines we use,” the spokeswoman said.
"We are working with Russell Athletic to determine how this happened and in the meantime are removing the shirt from our stores,” a Walmart statement read. “We understand the pride Marylanders feel for the Terps, and apologize for the mistake."
