(KFTK) - Walmart was left red-faced and apologizing after several "adult" themed sweaters featured on their website caused some outrage.

One sweater displayed Kris Kringle roasting his "chestnuts" over a fireplace, while another showed Santa sitting in front of three lines of a white substance above the caption, "Let It Snow." 

The description clarified the makeup of the powdery pile, explained: 

"We all know how snow works. It’s white, powdery and the best snow comes straight from South America. That’s bad news for jolly old St. Nick, who lives far away in the North Pole. That’s why Santa really needs to savor the moment when he gets his hands on some quality, grade A Colombia snow. He packs it in perfect lines on his coffee table and then takes a big whiff to smell the high-quality aroma of the snow. It’s exactly what he needs to get inspired for Christmas Eve."

The copy also touts the sweater as "warm and cozy, so you can wear it anytime the snow starts blowing this holiday season."

Some of the other provocative holiday sweaters – which were still listed for sale the website – depict Santa on the toileturinating on a snowbankriding a tank and waving an American flag and having his bare bottom whipped by a lingerie-clad Mrs. Claus.

A spokesperson for the retailer told Global News, "These sweaters, sold by a third-party seller on Walmart.ca, do not represent Walmart's values and have no place on our website."
