A Canadian apparel company has reached a $1 million settlement with Russell Brands and Fruit of the Loom stemming from the relabeling and resale of Jerzees brand sportswear at stores in at least three states.

The agreement ends a dispute between Gildan Activewear Inc., based in Montreal, and the two Bowling Green, Ky.-based companies. Under the terms of the agreement, Gildan must stop removing or altering Jerzees labels and tags and must destroy any stock of the sportswear.

A Gildan spokesman says the company offered the settlement to end the litigation and did not admit any wrongdoing.

Russell Brands and Fruit of the Loom sued Gildan in federal court in Bowling Green, accusing Gildan of selling Jerzees brand clothes after winning a contract with Dollar General stores.
