Several hundred garment workers were sickened at their factory outside Bangladesh's capital on Sunday, apparently after drinking water there.

Jahid said most of the workers suffered vomiting and stomach problems. None was life-threatening.

He said up to 4,000 workers are employed in the factory.

Earlier this month, contaminated drinking water sickened 450 workers at Starlight Sweater Factory in the same area. Authorities cleaned the reservoir and reopened the factory a day later.

Glenn Beck Launches 1791 Brand Apparel
October 17, 2012

Glenn Beck may be relying on the appeal of the blue-collar worker on his new 1791 Supply & Co. clothing website, but he might be hard-pressed to find many who could afford the $129 for a pair of “premium, ring-spun selvage denim” or $90 Western-style shirts.

The collection was inspired by Beck’s anger with Levi’s jeans for its ads featuring young people facing off against police, according to Women’s Wear Daily. In 1791 the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution— and Beck wants American consumers to remember their founding fathers with their clothing choices.

With print ads that featured former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, tennis champ Serena Williams, a former Miss USA and other women dressed in NFL gear and stilettos, the league seemed to suggest that fashion and football can go hand in hand. On Wednesday, the NFL released a new product to corroborate that idea: a New York Jets shirt designed by Marchesa.
