Target Pulls Che CD Case

Target has pulled a CD carrying case with the image of Ernesto “Che” Guevara wearing iPod-style headphones.

“It is never our intent to offend any of our guests through the merchandise we carry,” Target said in a statement. “We have made the decision to remove this item from our shelves and we sincerely apologize for any discomfort this situation may have caused our guests.”

Oh, the irony of “Che” consumerism. —MEGHANN MARCO
