Amazon.com Inc. is the latest retailer to cut Washington Redskins merchandise from its site, joining Walmart Inc., Target Corp. and Nike Inc. in casting out a team name that contains a racial slur.

The e-commerce giant told sellers they had 48 hours to review and remove Redskins products flagged by Amazon, according to a letter reviewed by Bloomberg. Amazon, through a spokeswoman, declined to comment beyond confirming that it notified sellers on Wednesday. The merchandise included T-shirts, hats and other gear.
