A California woman was shocked to find what appeared to be swastikas on Hanukkah wrapping paper.
Cheryl Shapiro says she was shopping at a Walgreens in Northridge when she spotted the symbol on the holiday paper.
Shapiro says she can’t believe the design made it through production and into stores.
“I saw it immediately. I think i have a good eye. I panicked. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she said.
According to The Kansas City Star, Hallmark Cards Inc., which licensed the wrapping paper rolls, heard about the problem Sunday night and alerted its retailers on Monday to remove the design from their shelves.
“We apologize for the oversight and apologize to anyone who was offended. That obviously was not our intent,” Hallmark spokeswoman Julie Elliott told The Kansas City Star. “It was an oversight on our part to not notice the intersecting lines that could be seen as a swastika pattern.”
