Is Chick-fil-A Lying About Recalling the Jim Henson Kids Meal Toys?
The picture above has been making the rounds, and the race to accuse Chick-fil-A of lying for Jesus has begun. The heavens know some Christians sometimes lie for their causes, but, I dunno, this picture seems too disastrous for the restaurant’s PR to be true. Color me skeptical. I’ve seen some news reports about Chick-fil-A recalling the Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Puppet toys, but they all seem to be based on this one photograph. Anyone know if this sign is legit? Might be a good idea to confirm that this sign is real (and false) before shouting “You lie!” Just a thought.
[UPDATE] ThinkProgress says its real, quoting an official announcement from the Chick-fil-a’s public relations:
We can confirm that it is true that Chick-fil-A voluntarily withdrew the Jim Henson kids meal toys nationwide because of a potential safety concern. This is unrelated to the Jim Henson announcement.
So now the question becomes: is this true?
