A vendor tag is showing up in a collection hyperlink that any customer can see

To save myself time, I often input the direct vendor's hyperlink of their particular product into the Vendor field at the back end of my product page so it's just a click away when I need to reorder.

I have recently deleted a product but was alarmed to see it as a full link within a collection even though it was a 404 error page. Even with a URL redirect that link will not die!

In other words, any customer could see EXACTLY where I bought that item...

I have been told by a Shopify guru it is a collection URL with a tag filter added to it.

I simply don't believe you cannot permanently delete this particular "tag" or website address, nor redirect it once it's obsolete.

Is anyone having this issue???
