The pancake syrup brand Mrs. Butterworths known for its matronly woman-shaped bottle will undergo a complete brand and packaging review, a spokesperson for Conagra Brands said Wednesday. The development comes after parent companies for Aunt Jemima and Uncle Bens announced that the two product lines will see branding changes of their own.
We understand that our actions help play an important role in eliminating racial bias and as a result, we have begun a complete brand and packaging review on Mrs. Butterworths, Conagra Brands Communications Manager Dan Skinner told Forbes. The company added:
We stand in solidarity with our Black and Brown communities and we can see that our packaging may be interpreted in a way that is wholly inconsistent with our values. Its heartbreaking and unacceptable that racism and racial injustices exist around the world. We will be part of the solution. Lets work together to progress toward change.

This is a great opportunity for someone to corner the racist high fructose corn syrup syrup market.
Hey but its quite all right to make fun of southern whites, rural whites and call people rednecks and whiteyand white privilege
Oh and I guess MR Do Gooder here failed to see the negro thug punch the 92-year-old white woman and the gangs attacking solo whites
Maybe they can use that recent picture of Stacey Abrams wearing a cape as the prototype for its revamped packaging.
Forget Chef Boradee. What about Log Cabin?
Now that they are pulling down Lincoln statues, how is Log Cabin going to survive?
From elsewhere ...
“Many African Americans object to the term “Uncle” (or “Aunt”) when used in this context, as it was a southern form of address first used with older enslaved peoples, since they were denied use of courtesy titles.
According to The New York Times, “white Southerners once used ‘uncle’ and ‘aunt’ as honorifics for blacks because they refused to say Mrs or Mister.”
Earl Campbell Hot Links?
Mr. Clean is dripping with white supremacy.
Just dont touch my Dreamland bbq sauce. Bing John made the sauce, and his likeness is on the packaging.
Mrs Butterworth is not black.
IS Mrs. Butterworth black?
News to me.
And this ISN’T the Babylon Bee
I’m really troubled by both the Jolly Green Giant and Mr. Clean. Something needs to do something about that.
