YORBA LINDA, Calif., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A California elementary school said it recalled T-shirts given to students that were printed with a phone number for a sex line.

Principal Jackie Howland of Linda Vista Elementary School in Yorba Linda said the T-shirts, which were distributed to students who participated in a recent jog-a-thon, featured a logo with what was supposed to be a fake 1-800 number with letters instead of numbers, The Orange County (Calif.) Register reported Wednesday.

Rosemary Gladden, public information officer for Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District, said a parent called the number, which was supposed to be a slogan for the event, but it turned out to be a real number for a phone sex line.

Gladden said the shirts have been recalled.

"It was an innocent mistake," Gladden said. "Parents have been very understanding."
