Milk company sorry for brochure with swastika


BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — An Argentine national milk company apologized for distributing a marketing brochure that contained a swastika.

In a supermarket in the Buenos Aires coastal province Mar del Plata, the Sancor company offered a tasting of a new chocolate milk and handed out a magazine filled with children’s games and discount coupons. A correspondent from the local Jewish news agency noticed that the magazine featured an image of a library containing a book with a swastika on its binding.

After the DAIA Jewish political umbrella appealed to the milk company last week, Sancor made public apologies for the unintentional mistake. The marketing company did not see the swastika in the background of the picture, a company spokesman said.
