The severed head Mudokon Pop was retconned by Abe's Exoddus, as seen during Abe's entry into FeeCo. It was never meant to be a severed head, as it clashes horribly with the other tasty treats product labels.

The reason the head on a stick was retconned was because of an incident in Japan close to AO's release there. Some kid at a school decapitated a fellow student and put his head on a stick/fence. Originally the design was only changed in the Japanese version of AO, but later it was applied to all versions of all Oddworld games.

http://oddworld.wikia.com/wiki/Mudok...#Design_change

I think the original head on a stick design was meant to shock the player, and drive home the connection between Abe's appearance and the graphic. That effect is basically absent from the newer design.

Lanning also didn't like it.

Where? Pretty sure Lorne actually told us in person that he liked the original Mudokon Pop design when we were speaking to him after the talk. Either way, it's not really important.
