Have we really reached the point where companies need to apologize for pure coincidences?
Weber Grills apologizes for ill-timed meatloaf recipe email
NEW YORK — Weber Grills apologized on Friday for sending a recipe-of-theweek email earlier that day featuring instructions on how to prepare “BBQ Meat Loaf.” The email from the outdoor grill maker coincided with news of the death of Marvin Lee Aday, best known as rock superstar Meat Loaf, who died Thursday at 74. Not long after sending out its recipe, Weber Grills followed up, offering its “sincerest apologies” to recipients. The company based in Palatine, Illinois, later offered its condolences to Aday’s family and fans.
