U.S. clothing retailer Gap has apologized for selling T-shirts with what it says was an "erroneous" map of China.

In a posting on its Chinese social media account late Monday, the company apologized for its "unintentional mistake" and promised to carry out "more rigorous reviews" in the future.

The company also said all the shirts in China have been recalled and destroyed.

Gap took action after photos began circulating on Chinese social media of a T-shirt with a map that appeared to leave out southern Tibet, the disputed South China Sea and Taiwan, a self-ruled island that Beijing regards as Chinese territory.

The photos were reportedly taken at a Gap shop in Canada.

Gap is the latest of several companies that have apologized for perceived slights to China's sovereignty.
