Trader Joe’s Manager Stops Anti-Maskers from entering Oregon store


I saw this news on REDDIT and am just reposting it here as after watching this I find it incredible to believe this would even need to be done by a Trader Joe’s manager. I guess that’s because I live in New York City, where Covid-19 basically landed first and where in March and April it decimated a large number of New Yorkers . We’ve lost 26,000 lives.

This lady’s group in Oregon thinks they don’t need to wear a mask to go shopping at Trader Joe’s?!

2 Trader Joe’s employee have DIED due to Covid-19. They simply went to work in order to make a living, and unfortunately got Covid-19 at their workplace. We, the public need to keep them and all essential workers as safe as possible. Be respectful, and wear your damn mask when you go shopping. Be respectful of any worker who doesn’t have the luxury of “working from home”. Employees at TJ’s must meet hundreds of people a day. Respect businesses policies and their SIGN that says you must wear a mask to enter.

FYI = No Pink Slime at TJ’s

Your Trader Joe’s: NYC, Bway, 72 St
Product Name:     Ground Beef

Your Comments:   I read that 70% of all supermarket ground beef now contains ‘pink slime’ as filler. What about TJ’s ground beef ?

———–

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to reach out to us. Our ground beef is 100% pure beef with nothing added. Please be reassured that this is not something that would be permitted in our products– NO pink slime in any of our meat. We only work with reputable suppliers, many of which are actually generally much smaller in comparison to other markets, just so that we can ensure the quality and integrity of our products. We also have third party audits of our products and vendor facilities to ensure that our standards are met.

At Trader Joe’s, food safety is of the utmost importance, and we take seriously the work done to ensure our products are wholesome and safe; after all, we’re customers, too – and we would not sell anything we would not eat, drink, or use ourselves!

Kind regards,
Kerry

Uncrystallized CANDIED GINGER – Its Baa-aack!!


STOP THE PRESSES!

 

This is a package of Trader Joe’s ‘Uncrystallized CANDIED GINGER’.

Its back!

Yes, its true. This now almost mythical TJ product is finally back in stock after being MIA and off the shelf at Trader Joe’s for more than one year! 

Possibly due to some labeling issue (I heard some manager mention sulfites), possible due to supply issues, this was off the shelves at Trader Joe’s for a long long time. I mean over a year!  Seems they’ve solved whatever the issue was because its back on the shelf. And the label on the back has only two things on it, ginger and sugar. Pretty natural product.

So I can finally get my fix for this (very) spicy adult candy. (Now should I buy a case?)

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

Thanks to one of my readers, Nancy who first sent the alert about this!
