    A company which operates four factories with 1,100 employees in Alabama, is appealing its loss of a contract to produce U.S. military uniforms.

   American Apparel has filed a protest with the General Accounting Office.  The GAO has 90 days to review it.
    American Apparel's Alabama plants are in Centre, Selma, Oneonta and Opp.
