Sactown Magazine Recall Rumor is BOGUS

[This article has been amended- see correction at bottom] We just heard that SacTown Magazine has recalled copies of its latest issue. The new issue came out yesterday but the publication sent out an email today saying they’d be by to pick up copies from some retailers. Huh? And they are SERIOUS- they’re driving around, picking magazines up right now.

We haven’t seen a copy, so we can’t say if an ad is printed upside down or if there’s a glaring error in an article or what…

Anybody gotta clue?
SacTown Co-Editor in Chief Rob Turner got back to us and stomped the rumor flat. The truth is much more mundane: Some copies of the latest issue were damaged on one of the shipping trucks and they are replacing those (and a few other boxes from the same truck for safety.)

    Paloma–HA! That’s awesome. I don’t know–we’ve been getting it for free for some reason so I will have to look at it more closely before they come steal it in the night.

    Could it be because they neglected to note the amazing and exciting 4th Annual In The Flow Festival in Midtown May 12-16?

    Tim, what you wrote is not remotely true. There’s been no recall. An extremely small percentage of our covers were damaged in transit and we are replacing those before our on-sale date of April 1. We are also replacing some of the boxes that were on the same truck as a precaution. We are in no way, shape or form retrieving all of the copies. In fact, all 30,000 of the mailed copies went out on Saturday, and we’ve literally had ONE store tell us the covers were damaged. That’s 100 copies out of 50,000 we printed. No conspiracy theory here. Sorry that it’s not more exciting than that.

    It’s because they neglected to mention the awesome Vegan Bake Sale for Japan going on this weekend!
