Update on my earlier post about Whole Foods

I posted earlier today about Whole Foods caving in to bigots. Turns out that the article was wrong. Whole Foods has said via their Twitter account that the promotion is still on and it has not been cancelled. They do point out the mistake of one of their regions.
Hi everyone.....we'd like to address the many comments coming in regarding the promotion of halal products for the celebration of Ramadan. We are still carrying and promoting halal products for those that are celebrating Ramadan this month. We never sent a communication from our headquarters requesting stores take down signs or remove parts from this promotion. We have 12 different operating regions and unfortunately, one region reacted by sending out directions to promote halal and not specifically Ramadan after some negative online comments.We're extremely excited about offering halal products products for our shoppers and we stand behind them AND our promotion of them.
The company posted that on their twitter account earlier through several tweets.
