Greensboro, NC — A Triad man’s complaint led to a doll being pulled from Costco shelves across the Northeast and Southeast.
A man complained the doll, packaged with a plush monkey, was offensive as he bought it at the Costco store on Wendover Avenue on July 30, said James Stafford, store manager.
The “Cuddle with Me” doll package he complained about includes an African-American doll and a plush monkey. The baby doll is wearing a hat that reads, “Lil’ Monkey.”
The dolls were sold exclusively at Costco stores in the Northeast and Southeast.
The complaint from Greensboro was the only one the company received, according to Art Jackson, Costco’s vice president of general administration.
