As reported by 3AW Radio

3AW Breakfast's Rumour File was told the bakery chain had sent out t-shirts with the slogan "we've got the best buns in town" plastered across the front for staff to wear while working.

Do you seriously not think they're intending that as a bit of sleazy comment? We're talking about kids, remember. - Neil Mitchell

It sparked outrage, with 16-year-old Jess telling Neil Mitchell she worked at one of bakeries and felt "uncomfortable" about the shirt. 

Her father Colin was furious about it.

"Young girls aren't pieces of meat behind a counter," he said on 3AW Mornings.

"It's totally inappropriate." See full article at 3AW Radio or scroll down to listen to the radio segment.
