Sam's Club Apologizes For Candy-In-Prescription-Bottles Promo

Sam’s Club has put an end to their recent pharmacy campaign and apologized for confusing pills with candy. After Joe at Salisbury News, who received the giant pill bottle filled with sweets, wrote to complain, they sent him a response in which they said it was an isolated incident and won’t be repeated elsewhere:

We have also shared with all of our pharmacy departments that this is an unacceptable practice and should not be repeated. At Sam’s Club we always have the health and welfare of our customers and members in mind with everything we do and we deeply regret that this incident occurred.

You can read the full response over at Salisbury News.

(Note: Joe says Sam’s Club gave him permission to publish the email, so you can ignore the “privileged and confidential” warning at the bottom of it.)
