Whole Foods Gets Eaten Alive For Mistake-Filled Map Of French Cheeses

Whole Foods Gets Eaten Alive For Mistake-Filled Map Of French Cheeses
Updated 9 months ago

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. 

The map incorrectly identified the origins of famous cheeses:

One Twitter user posted a correct map:

In France, there is a VERY IMPORTANT DOCUMENT called the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, which regulates the naming of cheeses from different regions. 

After Twitter users tagged Wholes Foods, a spokesperson told Mashable:

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."

No word on how the merger will affect future maps.
