Cheese lovers of Twitter called out Whole Foods when a stylized map of where French cheeses are from surfaced. The signs were allegedly found in Detroit, Michigan and Washington D.C. stores.
In France, there is a VERY IMPORTANT DOCUMENT called the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, which regulates the naming of cheeses from different regions.
Our stores are currently featuring wines and cheeses from France, and several locations mistakenly received an incorrect version of this map. We’re removing it from stores and correcting it.

Whole Foods Market, founded in 1980, has over 91,000 employees across the U.S. The company exclusively features foods without artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners, and hydrogenated fats. Whole Foods and Amazon recently went through a merger, allegedly to "work together to make high-quality, natural and organic food affordable for everyone."
