Peeled, then Re-Packaged Bananas Outrages Folks – Really?
It turns out a grocery store in Austria is actually selling pre-peeled bananas that have then been re-packaged on plastic trays wrapped in plastic.
So what’s the big deal? Well after this image was posted on the German-owned Billa supermarket chain’s Facebook page, outrage users bombarded the page with abuse and threatened a boycott over the ban…and this is after the store apologised for the ‘one off’ mistake.
A spokesman for Greenpeace in Austria where the peeled bananas had been on sale said: “If there is an easy to open ready packed food it’s the banana – peeling it only to pack it in environmentally unfriendly plastic is just madness.”
The irony behind this madness is the supermarket chain’s slogan urges customers to use more common sense when shopping.
