Prevent This Tragedy: Selling Pre-Peeled Bananas In Cellophane Covered Foam Trays.

Pre-peeled bananas sold in a Billa Supermarket.The photo of the pre-peeled and wrapped bananas for sale was posted on Facebook and caused quite stir for the Billa Supermarket chain. In the face of threatened boycotts and the social media uproar, Billa has apologized and they’ve promised not to pre-peel & wrap their bananas again.

Jubbling’s take: BFD. They did it and won’t do it again. Move on. But one there is one issue that hasn’t been cleared up: who would buy pre-peeled bananas wrapped in cellophane on a foam tray? Hate to think that there are people living among us who haven’t figure out the whole banana peeling thing. [Gizmodo and Austrian Times]
