NORTHFIELD, Ill. (CBS St. Louis) — Kraft Foods is attempting to clean up the mess made by the accidental release of a controversial Oreo advertisement that features a breastfeeding baby.

The ad shows a baby feeding from an uncensored breast and holding an Oreo cookie in its hand.

“Milk’s favorite cookie,” it reads at the bottom.

A spokesperson from Kraft told CBS St. Louis that the ad was not intended for mass public consumption.

“We’d like to clarify that Kraft Foods did not create this visual,” a spokesperson said in a statement via e-mail. “In fact, this visual was created by our agency for a one-time use at an advertising awards program.”

The spokesperson added, “It was never intended for public distribution or use with consumers. And it has never run in Korea or any other markets.”

Cheil Worldwide, the advertising agency utilized by Kraft, has been credited with creating the design concept. (Warning: Graphic Image in Link) Kraft, headquartered in Northfield, Ill., is known for the production of snack goods such as Wheat Thins, Ritz Crackers and Chips Ahoy! cookies, in addition to Oreos.

Please forgive my terrible typos. These old fingers and eyes don’t work like they used to, but I think you get the general idea of what I tried to say. God bless.

Go to the link for the ad. The baby is clearly oriental/Korean. Just look at the eyes.

Every product Kraft has purchased has just about been turned to sh-t. I think the only brand they haven’t killed is their own macaroni and cheese dinner. The cheddar cheese component still tastes the same as I remember it from fifty years ago. Having said that, this company is shameless in its use of HFCS in every product and additional additives anywhere it can incorporate them. Last week the wife purchased a new line of cookies which turned out to be from Kraft, and they actually upset my stomach. The ingredient list read like the label on some of those hair care products from California, which, based on the spellings of the names, must have originated on another planet. If we are reverse-engineering anything from captured UFO technology, it has to be hair care products from California.
