Woolies recalls Christmas stubby holder after awkward spelling error

Woolworths shoppers were left in stitches over a misspelled Christmas-themed stubby holder placed on shelves this week.

The embarrassing gaffe was spotted by an eagle-eyed mother and later posted in a Facebook group on Saturday after the supermarket became aware of the error.

An accompanying image showed a bunch of blue beverage holders with the words “Merry Christhmas” scrawled along the front in a red font.

“Woolies have misspelt Christmas...I think I need one anyway just for the laughs?” the woman wrote.

Plenty of other members also found the manufacturer’s stuff up rather amusing, with more than one joking that the maker of the stubby holder had “just one job.”

“No it's right, you slur your words when you’re drunk,” one person joked.

Two Woolies employees commented on the post, clarifying that the stubby holder had been offered in stores but was recalled over the weekend because of the spelling mistake.

“When the recall come through last night myself and staff laughed so hard,” one of the women said.

Woolworths confirmed to Yahoo News Australia that the product was pulled from shelves on Friday.
