Whole Foods pulls another useless product after getting shamed on Twitter

Whole Foods is often taken to task for some of the outrageously overpriced and occasionally even ridiculous products it offers. In its latest shame-worthy venture, the grocery chain has come under fire for selling individually packaged unpeeled oranges for $5.99/LB.

Whole Foods is often taken to task for some of the outrageously overpriced and occasionally even ridiculous products it offers. In its latest shame-worthy venture, the grocery chain has come under fire for selling individually packaged unpeeled oranges for $5.99/LB.

A tweet which brought attention to the packaged unpeeled oranges reads, “If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them.” and has been retweeted and favorited nearly 100,000 times since it was posted on March 3rd.   

While this blatantly wasteful product from a company with an image built on sustainability and ethical living is ironic, and has garnered Whole Foods criticism, the sheer price of these unpeeled plastic-boxed oranges would be enough to cause outrage. Twitter has been ruthlessly taking them to task over this wasteful and highly over priced product over the past week.

As one incredulous Twitter user pointed out, one has to wonder what the next logical step for Whole Foods would be. Half-eaten oranges? Either way, the online ridicule got Whole Foods to fold.

    It is too bad the people who objected to this didn’t think of those who have severe arthritis or any similar problem that would make peeling an orange difficult. Must be nice to be able to do so.

    Historically, a circumscribed agreement of the physiological chemical
    mechanism of erections controlled the discourse of ED to vacuum-chokepoint devices,
    prosthetic implants, intracavernosal injections, and intraurethral suppositories.4 Since
    its advent, the socio-economic class of agents known as
    type-5 phosphodiesterase (PDE5) inhibitors has revolutionized the direction of ED.

    PDE5 inhibitors get get the first-contrast therapy for ED, as recommended by the Solid ground Urological Connexion (AUA) and the European Affiliation of Urology http://lm360.us/

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am
    concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated! http://grassfed.us/
