Grocery Store Goofs With Hanukkah Ham Ad
3 hours ago
NEW YORK (AP) — This was REALLY not kosher.
A grocery store in Manhattan made a food faux pas, advertising hams as "Delicious for Chanukah."
Chanukah — an alternate spelling for Hanukkah — is the eight-day Jewish holiday that began Tuesday evening, and hams — as well as pork and other products from pigs — can't be eaten under Jewish dietary laws.
A woman who saw the mistake over the weekend at the Balducci's store on 14th Street took pictures of the signs and posted them on her blog.
Jennifer Barton, director of marketing, told The Associated Press on Thursday that the signs were changed as soon as the error was noted.
She issued an apology on the company Web site, saying the company would be reviewing its employee training.
Update: Balducci's apologizes for signing error.
To our valued customers:
We apologize for this unfortunate error and oversight. It was never our intention to offend anyone, especially during this holiday. We will be reviewing our employee training policy. We understand why this is offensive and please know we are attempting to determine the source of the error. http://www.balduccis.com/welcome
Thank you Sveta.
