The Council on American-Islamic Relations required Amazon to take down products they considered offensive to Muslims, including bath mats, doormats and several household items that had references to Prophet Muhammad. The company decided to remove the products from its website even if in the US the Communication Decency Act provided comprehensive immunity to online intermediaries to similar cases in the past, and the First Amendment protection makes US enforcement bans on offensive materials unlikely.
