Walmart said that its Confederate flag merchandise assortment somehow made its way by mistake in its inventory, CNN reports.

“We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer. We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment – whether in our stores or on our website,” Walmart spokesman Brian Nick said. “We have a process in place to help lead us to the right decisions when it comes to the merchandise we sell. Still, at times, items make their way into our assortment improperly – this is one of those instances.”

CNN asked both Amazon and eBay whether they would also remove all Confederate flag-related merchandise from their stores, but they have not responded.

Walmart’s response followed South Carolina. Gov. Nikki Haley’s announcement, who on Monday afternoon said that she supports removing the Confederate flag from the state capitol grounds. Other politicians, including state elected officials and 2016 GOP presidential candidates and likely candidates voiced their support for Haley’s decision.
