The Ultimate in Packaging Idiocy With Bananas

Celsias

A supermarket chain, Billa which advertises using a slogan that urges more common sense in shopping has had to withdraw hastily from one of the dumbest bits of packaging we have yet seen.

billa bananas Bananas come in a wonderful wrap, but Billa has been selling peeled bananas on plastic trays wrapped in foil.Unbelievable! 

The idiocy of the packaging has attracted very angry comments on the store's Facebook page which has now been disabled and staff moved to distance themselves from the sale of ready-peeled bananas and apologised for the "one off" mistake, saying it would not happen again.

 
A spokesman for Greenpeace in Austria where the peeled bananas had been on sale said: "If there is an easy to open ready packed food it's the banana  - peeling it only to pack it in environmentally unfriendly plastic is just madness.
