NEW YORK (April 5, 2013)--Shoppers at a Target store in Brooklyn say a label that listed the color of a plus-size dress as "manatee gray" was insulting.
The label on smaller sizes described the same dress as "dark heather gray."
Target apologized for the label.
Michelle Ho, who was shopping at the store at Atlantic Terminal Mall, told the New York Post Target was "putting down one set of people over another" with the different labels.
Spokeswoman Jessica Deede called the labeling of the Mossimo-brand "Women's Plus-Size Kimono Maxi Dress" ''an unintentional oversight."
She said although manatee gray was a seasonal color, Target was "fixing the discrepancy."
She said the item was removed from the company website.
