Earlier this year, I had read an article in the news about Trader Joe’s coming under fire for selling cans of tuna that were ‘under filled’, per the weight description on the outside of the can…
Now let’s be clear…. I’m not interested in deception – of any variety. As you know, I’m a big-time truth-seeker & purveyor. Additionally, you may also recall that I have my issues, as well as love affair, with Trader Joe’s…
With that said – I have a couple of big issues relating to this claim…
- The cans state 5oz, and ‘legally’ they are allowed to weigh as low as 3.23oz minimum – per 5oz can. WHY on earth is it allowed to be ‘under filled’ AT ALL? Can I get a ‘WTF’?
- This is what REALLY gets me…. How is it that they will jump at the chance to file suit against a company for the quantity they claim to be selling, but yet – no one comes under fire for the general lacking QUALITY of the foods and ‘food items’ being packaged & sold in most chains?
THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO KNOW…
- WHEN will we see more suits filed against companies for applying non-food ingredients, processed & artificial additives, and straight-up poisonous ingredients (carcinogens, pesticides & herbicides, etc) to our foods?!
- When will we see regulations that PROTECT the consumer FROM ACTUAL HARM? (Rather than merely being under-sold, though this too still needs *better* regulating.)
- When will it become illegal for poisons and non-food items to be considered part of the food supply at all?
- When will PEOPLE and their health, and the health of our planet, come before profits??
- When will corporations stop trying to play God, by manipulating the very genetics of the plants and animals we rely on? When will that no longer be ‘legal’?
- When will food have to be strictly FOOD in order to be labeled as such?
- When will all of the big corporations be called out on their GOBS of buried deception and false claims? You know – the lies that actually pose a threat to our individual health and that of society as a whole… When will THEY be held accountable for the countless lives that have been negatively impacted, or even lost early, to preventable disease. How about misleading ads and the lies and deceit that have been carried out for decades already?
- When will those supposedly overseeing our food supply be as adamant about the harmful inclusions repeatedly being falsely advertised as ‘safe’, ‘all natural’, and even ‘healthy’ come under such scrupulous regulation??
Yes, I want to be able to trust that what I’m buying will supply me with the amount I need…. But quite frankly – the only harm that brings about is public trust and perhaps a few cents lost…. When does our health and the entire planet’s ability to survive and thrive come first? Well, until it does – we have to make that choice for ourselves and take back our power.
