CONCORD - The 'Bartender's Black Book 10th Edition' has been recalled from N.H. Liquor Outlets after state employees complained some of the language was too racy.
The book was intended to help liquor store employees answer questions about cocktail recipes.
But EJ Powers, a spokesperson for the Liquor Commission said all copies have been collected 'so as not to offend our valued workforce.'
It brings up the topic that Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has been firing off in public: are we too politically correct?
NH1 viewers weren't shy to voice their opinion on our Facebook page.
"Is there anything that people aren’t offended by today?" asked Kevin Malvey.
While others said it's important to take care of your employees.
"You gotta listen to your employees if they're offended right?" said Austin Johnson.
The State spent $3,300 on 500 copies of the book, which have since all been collected.
NH1 obtained a copy of the book which is sold to liquor stores in all 50 states, the publisher said.

A spokesperson for The Bartender's Black Book said they've never had an issue in the past.
"We would have customized it, if they said we want no swears in the book we would have took all the swears out of the book," said Paul Masiello.
Powers said the book was reviewed before the large order was placed.
"In retrospect, we could have done a more thorough job vetting the guide," Powers said.
What do you think? Are we too P.C.? Should State Liquor Store employees have been exposed to the language in the book? Post your comments below as we continue to follow the story.
