After an embarrassing mishap, in which content controls on its in-store Wi-Fi blocked websites about gay rights, reproduction planning, and abortion, Au Bon Pain said on Wednesday that its Internet provider shouldn't have blocked the sites, and that the sandwich chain was "now working closely with our Wi-Fi provider to establish the correct parameters for internet usage and make sure no issues of the sort arise in the future."
