Honestly, I didn’t do it on purpose. I was just so angry about the situation…I mean, for what we pay…we deserve better!
So I don’t really have too many passionate causes in life, but I’m now on a one man crusade to get Whole Foods Market to take a better look at the management of their perishable food products. This is pretty first world, but bear with me because I’m sure it’ll hit home one way or another.
It all began this morning when the Whole Foods by work ran out of my So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk Yogurt. I had to look for an alternative and it was between this Lavva one or the Cocoyo (which, I’ve been eyeing for like ever, but that’s like #goals for another time). So I bought the $3 one. I don’t generally check expiration dates because I buy for the week and well I expected a bit more from a place like Whole Foods. Imagine my surprise after eating it and finding out that the best by date was 8/11/18!
Of course, I called the store letting them know to un-stock that stuff and then wrote an e-mail. Naturally, I’m Chinese, so I want some free stuff out of it. Perhaps like one of those $9 glass jars of Cocoyo. I mean…I can potentially get very sick because of this…
And who says one person cannot affect change? Over the weekend, I received an e-mail from them. Whole Foods is going to re-train their entire team to ensure we will never be negatively affected by expired plant based yogurt again! I also went back for a quality assurance check this morning and they indeed removed all expired Lavva Original Yogurts from their shelves.
