Sex-line cereal box

Article-Sex-line cereal box

The Associated Press recently reported that a typo on Oregon based Peace Cereal’s packaging resulted in a phone-sex number being posted on the box. The health-oriented brand's packaging, which was supposed to have the company’s 800 number, instead carried the number of a phone sex line that greeted callers with a recorded voice that asked “Do you love sex? … Isn’t that why you called?”

A number of the incorrect “sex-line” packages were said to still be on shelves as of last week, despite the error having been found in December 2008.
