Some of you may recall that I griped about a commercial that Kraft Foods used for A1 sauce, and how Kraft used someone who switched his prisoner number with someone on death row in order to get to eat a steak with A1 sauce. Well, a blogger (Hooman Hedayati) must have read my post and got in contact with Kraft Foods. Here’s the story he has sent me:

Yes and they decided to not show it anymore. Here is the email they sent to me:
Subject: A1 Complaint
Thank you for visiting http://www.kraftfoods.com/.
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding our most
recent A1 commercial. This was an inadvertent oversight and we deeply
regret it. We are taking immediate steps to correct the situation and
ensure it doesn’t happen again. In fact, we are discontinuing the airing
of this particular commercial temporarily in order to revise it
The ad was not meant to reflect real events or people on death row; it was an
unfortunate oversight that we sincerely regret.
We’re sorry if we offended you in any way. Thanks again for bringing
this to our attention.
If you haven’t done so already, please add our site to your favorites
and visit us again soon!
A big thanks to Hooman! and to Kraft Foods!
