“With the announcement from the Washington team and the NFL, we are removing products with the team’s name and logo from our stores,” a spokesperson told CNBC. “Failure to properly close or delete all restricted product listings from your inventory may result in deactivation.”
CNBC reported that sellers on Amazon were given 48 hours to remove Redskins merchandise.
