In a topic unrelated to football, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco’s ceral—OchocincO’s—have been removed from Kroger shelves in the Cincinnati area due to a mistake with a misprinted phone number that connects customers to a sex line.
The limited edition cereal boxes provided a number to Feed The Children since a portion of the proceeds went to the organization. The number for the organization was supposed to be listed as 1-888-HELP-FTC, but the misprinted boxes said 1-800-HELP-FTC. Instead of reaching the organization, those who called heard the voice of a “seductive-sounding woman.”
From the Cincinnati Enquirer:
The number on the boxes, 1-800-HELP-FTC, connects callers to a seductive-sounding woman’s voice and music. She teases in shocking detail and then asks for a debit or credit card number: “You must be 18 or older to get into this party, baby!”
Obviously, this isn’t one of those matters where Ocho should be at fault considering it was just an honest mistake. Keep in mind—he deserves credit for taking the time to help out a good cause and the problem is being taken care of.
