ELC is a truly global brand, which means we need to be aware of the full range of customer expectations and cultural differences. The decision to remove the pig from our Goosefeather farm set was taken in reaction to customer feedback in some parts of the world.
We recognise that pigs are familiar farm animals - especially for our UK customers. Taking on board all the customer feedback, we have taken the decision to reinstate the pig and to no longer sell the set in those international markets where it might create an issue. Any customers who have bought Goosefeather Farm in the last few months will be able to order a pig free of charge to complete their set via our website in the coming weeks.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
I dont get it. Its not even a pig. Its a piece of plastic moulded to look like a pig. Seriously, some people have way to much time on their hands. Its not like they are selling the set with a big slab of bacon.

I'm not an apologist for Muslims...they can look after themselves quite well and do. I grew up with all the Catholic Vs Protestant bull**** in the 50s and 60s. That was a waste of O2 for this country and so is the current bull****. HTFU and get over it!
