Target is not the only retailer hawking products with the slogan this holiday season, AdWeek pointed out. Time magazine reported that “OCD” items have also been found at the restaurant chain Cracker Barrel.

“We never want to disappoint our guests, and we apologize for any discomfort,” a Target spokesman said in a statement to AdWeek. “We currently do not have plans to remove this sweater.”
