The Cricket's Daily 3: Chick-Fil-A's P.R. stumbles

Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• Chick-Fil-A says it's recalling toys representing Jim Henson Company characters for "a possible safety issue," and not because the Henson Company publicly renounced its partnership with the fast-food chain because its CEO bankrolls anti-gay-marriage groups. Meanwhile, Chick-Fil-A was caught creating a Facebook account for a fictional teen girl supporting the restaurant. [The Hollywood Reporter, HappyPlace.com]
