  2. My name is Joshua Thomas and I work in Target’s Communications department. I’ve been working with our buying team on this situation and wanted to share an update.

    First and foremost, it is never Target’s intent to offend any of our customers – or guests as we call them at Target – with the products we offer. If any product raises questions or concerns, we listen to our guests. That’s exactly what happened here. As soon as we were made aware of the concerns about this soda, we removed it from our shelves.

    We sincerely apologize to anyone who may have been offended by this soda and assure you that we’re going to learn something from this situation that we can apply down the road. That doesn’t mean we’ll always get it just right, but hopefully it shows that we’re listening.

    Thanks for sharing your concerns, and again, I apologize on behalf of Target. If you’d like to speak with someone at the company or have feedback you’d like us to hear, I’d encourage you to contact our Guest Relations team at guest.relations@target.com.
