Uncanny Factoid: Pig Squeels

Posted in Random » Uncanny factoid   16 Nov 2010   / 4388 views

You can buy bacon flavored soda, coffees, and there is even a bacon flavored spread, but watch out because your little one might be playing with a plastic pig called Porkchop from a Happy Land Playset produced by the Early Learning Centre.

 

Well they won’t anymore; due to the company feeling that the pig would offend people of different religions, so they evicted the porker off the farm. Your farm will include all the other animals plus the piggies sty, but Pork Chop has left the farm.


Why was he chased away?  The toy manufactorer felt that it would offend people of other faiths, so they have removed the pig from the farm set. 

 

Due to public outrage at the removal of Pork Chop, the Early Learning Centre has agreed to add the pig back to the poke and not sell to international users.  They had mothers from all walks of life including Jewish and Muslim women writing and calling them to let them know that they screwed up.

 

Learn Something: One out of five people don't eat pork.

the company was trying to avoid a problem and petty complainers (as above) turn it into another problem

More than once here in the states, people have complained that something about a product offends them. Then they sue, win and companies have to change or discontinue a product.

Of course leave it to folks to complain, when a company tries to what it perceives as the right thing to avoid a potential problem and end up getting bitched at anyway.
