So Mr. Ochocino just released a new cereal called OchocincO’s, awesome. Also, some of the proceeds from sales are going to go to Feed The Children, even more awesome. There is even a phone number on the box for you to call and donate further if you care to. What’s the problem then? Seems the number was printed incorrectly and the number leads to a sex hotline. Oops!
The phone number should have been 1-888-HELP-FTC (435-7382) but was printed as an 800 number instead. If you give it a ring you’ll hear the following, “You must be 18 or older to get into this party, baby,” before the sexy woman asks for a credit card number.
Chad tweeted about it saying:
Awe man im bummed about the cereal number mixup on the cereal, trying to do good and got messed up, of all numbers why that one!!! Sorry.
For those who were offended by the mixup my deepest apologies but i was only bringing awareness to a charity that im a huge part of, SORRY.
Apparently the error was reported by a family whose 9-year old daughter called the number in speakerphone. The current boxes are being pulled from supermarket shelves and will be reprinted with the correct numbers.
Chad apologized for the X-rated mistake on Thursday. “I take the blame and apologize to everyone affected,” he said. ”It’s almost like it was supposed to happen,” he added, explaining he hoped the headlines will help boost donations to Feed the Children. Let’s hope Mr. 85, let’s hope so.
