Does anyone else find it odd that Berkeley Bowl marks their organic food with permanent markers?
New responses are no longer being accepted.
I've thought the same thing. I think they mark to indicate freshness because the 99 cent bags contain marked organics. I also dislike the excessive use of plastic bags. I was planning to write a letter to management about the plastic bags.
Odd because it's toxic? I assume they do it when there is no identifying label, to make it easier for the cashiers to identify as organic. Not sure if I'd like more labels better (like the small organic labels on otherwise-unlabeled organic produce at Monterey Market), but yes, I'm bothered by the toxic ink on my produce. I just wish they would mark it (if they must) on an area I don't want to eat anyway.
