Kroger grocery stores pulled boxes of Cincinnati Bengals Chad Ochocinco’s cereal from their shelves on Thursday, after several philanthropist called the phone number listed on the boxes and received a sex line instead of being connected to Feed the Children.  The correct number is 1-888-HELP-FTC.

“I’ve been part of the (Feed the Children) and been doing things to help bring awareness to the causes. Having the cereal was another way,” Ochocinco told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Anyone I’ve affected I really do apologize. Some people got a laugh out of it, others are upset.

“It’s a little bit of a negative but it sheds a positive light on what I’m doing. They have to get the right number 1-888-Help FTC. Not 800. If you dial 800 you’re on your own.”

The cereal was supplied by a supplier in Pittsbugh, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Ochocinco made light of the incident by saying

“Remember, this was made in Pittsburgh.  Something isn’t right.”

Although this was a mistake, it brought positive awareness to Ochocinco’s charitable involvement.
