The retail giant wrote a letter to its suppliers on Aug. 27, saying they would have to be responsible for any added costs in order to avoid increasing costs for customers, The Wall Street Journal reportedWednesday.
The letter was sent days before a new round of tariffs went into effect on goods from both the U.S. and China. The U.S. implemented tariffs worth 15 percent on a host of goods from China, a decision that was met with countermeasures.
