As American As Yellow Mustard

There will be no Freedom Mustard in baseball stadiums this season, as, thankfully, French's mustard has put out a preemptive press release, which the Miami Herald actually bothered to print.

Among other vitally important facts, the article informs us that ...with Americans' current anathema to all things fran├žais, French's decided to get out the word that the name of its founder, R.T. French Co., is where it gets its moniker. Nothing, it says, could be more American that the official yellow spread of Yankee Stadium and America's mustard market leader.

All together now: This is news?

Also, who writes this stuff? That isn't the correct usage of anathema, is it?
