Gateway 2000 Inc, North Sioux City, South Dakota, has had to recall two promotional videotapes because an unknown number apparently include about 30 seconds of sexually-explicit content. Gateway says its general product video is known to have been affected and that, as a precaution, it is also recalling its Destination promotional video. The company reckons the offensive material was inserted by a disgruntled employee of a video reproduction supplier. The videos were intended to be sent to consumers that called a toll-free number included in its advertising. It was alerted to the problem by a handful of customers and individuals that received the videos from Gateway over the holidays were advised to destroy the tapes or return them to Gateway at the firm’s expense.
