DON’T EAT ANYTHING WITH THE “APEEL” STICKER ON IT
Submitted by Dinah Lundell
This is being reported from patriots in Canada… Anyone heard anything about this?
“Don’t eat anything with the “Apeel” sticker on it. It just appeared in our grocery stores (in Canada). I saw it for the first time today. The cucumbers were not wrapped in plastic, but there’s a big sign that said, “Coated in Apeel to protect freshness and reduced plastic waste.” The cucumbers also have a sticker on them with the word Apeel. I checked the company out and it’s funded by Bill Gates and others and the World Economic Forum endorses it. And I checked out their website and you can’t find any info about what exactly Apeel is. Look at the frequently asked questions: They even tell you there don’t buy it if you’re worried. In Canada so far it’s just on cucumbers and maybe apples. In the US it’s avocados, apples and I think limes and lemons maybe cucumbers, too. The company is very mysterious about what the product actually is. And it can’t be washed off no mater how much scrubbing it even says this on the website in the FAQ. Supposedly it can make produce last up to 3 times longer. Also suddenly the price of cucumbers dropped today to just over $3 for 3 cucumbers in a pack or $1.27 a cucumber they really want people to buy these cucumbers.”
