Following Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy‘s controversial announcement that the conservative, Christian-owned restaurant opposes gay marriage, the Jim Henson Co. announced it would cut its ties to the chain and donate Chick-fil-A’s payment to GLAAD.
A couple of days later, this happened (click to enlarge):
We apologize for any inconvenience but as of 7/19/2012 Chick-fil-A has voluntarily recalled all of the Jim Henson Creature Shop Puppet Kids Meal toys due to a possible safety issue. Please be advised that there have not been any cases in which a child has actually been injured, however there have been some reports of children getting their fingers stuck inthe holes of the puppets.
In spite of the language on the above sign, a rep for Chick fil-A says “This is not a recall — it is a voluntary withdrawal.”
Nice attempt to cover your sorry hides, but we’re not buying it.
