Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is putting “Duck Dynasty” items back on its shelves and apologizing to its customers.

The Lebanon-based restaurant and retailer said Sunday morning that it “made a mistake” Friday when it announced it would remove products associated with the A&E Network reality show amid a controversy over a cast members’ comments in a magazine interview.
