Young turkeys 365 brand

No one has any idea what the turkeys are fed - whether or not their food has been genetically modified. I asked a meat dept. employee because this is very important to me. He didn't know just read the package info. At least the birds are humanely raised. Still no idea about their food. Luckily I just found out the truth from an employee at another whole foods store. Poor birds do contain gmo. There goes my money on 3 birds. I'll donate them and tell my friend who has one to think about doing the same. Employees need to be better informed about the birds and tell shoppers. Better yet don't gmo the birds to begin with. I remember Safer Way foods in Austin. Remember your roots, please!

User's recommendation: don't buy 365 brand young turkeys.

FORCED SEGREGATION

stopthelockdown.net DO NOT SHOP WHERE YOU HAVE TO SHOW a jim Crow card. Even if the name is ok we are going forward! Protest as MLK did by WITHDRAWING YOUR DOLLARS. FREE HEALTH CARE IN THE CITIES N Rural Areas of usa. THAT PREVENTS THE CO MORBIDITIES. (underlying causes of these virus deaths, ARE NO FREE HEALTH PREVENTION CARE. every OTHER MAJOR NATION HAS IT. Only in usa do 66 percent of all bankruptcies come from medical debt!!!) The idea of forcing the public to show "Nazi cards/Jim Crow signed papers" in order to shop is new totalitarianism. We organize teachers, educators and students to boycott . uyouthiYfffffYOURYOUyour company.

User's recommendation: stopthelockdown.net.

Scanner price higher than ticket price resulting in overcharge

Whole Foods Market - Scanner price higher than ticket price resulting in overcharge
Purchased shrimp at seafood counter in Santa Clara. Weight and price was registered correctly on price tag, but when the price tag was scanned at the register, weight and price were both changed, resulting in higher item price, overcharging me by $7.02. I could only write to the office the Attorney General.

User's recommendation: Whole Foods has cheated customers this way before, double check your receipt for both weight and price.

Mask wearing

Your Ridgewood NJ store requires mask wearing in order to shop in their store. I find this request unlawful. Please advise when you will be removing this mandate as soon as possible. thank you

Poor packing service

On numerous occasions the checkout staff pack the food in an appalling way which can damage the food,I mentioned to one lady that placing eggs on the bottom and loading it up with heavy items on the top such as potatoe,onion,cheese is not a good way to pack groceries,she was rude to me and said she had packed it fine then proceeded to tell me .....peace out , that really annoyed me, a basic apology was required and I was given attitude by the lady .

User's recommendation: Pack your own goceries.

Former employee

Worked every weekend for one and a half years. Worked through a pandemic with department heads as store leaders. Not one of them got promoted into management. Store manager at West Cary sold everyone on a 1 store 1 team and failed to do to that. His own aspirations make him unable to lead. Ego micro management with no reciprocation thats what you will receive. Please change the fabricated image of his teeth at the front of the store.

User's recommendation: The store employees love you. Management has sold themselves.

COVID FRAUD

Went shopping at the Chappaqua NY store on Saturday night. I came home and checked the reciept. I was charged an extra $15.86 for Hearth Bread Half a Loaf. I dont know exactly what it is but I know there was nothing on the cconveyorbelt that would have a barcode with that product. Draw your conclusions yourself!

User's recommendation: Beware of Items added to your reciept!

Black bottom pizza

Whole Foods Market - Black bottom pizza
Whole Foods Market - Black bottom pizza
I bought the 2 for 20 deal on their cheese pizzas. I get home and they are black on the bottom! I contact customer service and speak to Rocelyn who tells me that even with the photographic proof I sent to her, she can not do anything to assist because I threw out my receipt with the bag it was in, and that I am just out the 20 dollars for the two gross and disgusting pizzas they sold me. See photos below.

User's recommendation: Don't trust them. I just don't know how it's possible they had no idea the food was this bad. Don't you think they had to know?

No receipt that's your problem

Amazing!!! You got the pizza home at 5pm, threw out your receipt, trash collection at 5:10pm and you noticed it at 5:12.

What bad luck you have!!! What a liar!!

Prices are higher on mainstream foods

When I price check basics like almond milk and organic foods I find that I can get comparable foods at Aldis and spend half overall on my grocery bills. As a single person, I also appreciate that I dont purchase what ends up in the trash because of the smaller sizes and the nature of organics not being able to be preserved as long as the chemical laden foods that can stay on the shelves much longer. My zero star review would be the fact that they are a health food store that believes we should be wearing masks while shopping and is going along w/the Covid scare even as 1,000s of doctors and researchers have presented peer reviewed studies indicating no such thing as Covid19 virus and no standardized or true identification of it via a PCR test thereby and yet they will *** insulting its shoppers whom largely are more well read on health issues.

User's recommendation: Shop at Aldi’s or farmer’s markets first and then go to Whole Foods and then hit the natural food stores for vitamins that they don’t carry.

Also instead of suing because you cannot behave in public why not learn how to behave in an acceptable manner. Technically they can sue you for claiming discrimination.

Harassment by store employee

Wholefoods on Las Vegas Blvd harassed me today for not wearing a mask. I was approached first by a security guard and then by and store employee. Very intimidating and uncomfortable experience.

What alternatives regarding protection against the corona virus are you using to reduce the risk to yourself and everyone around you?

#1971200
@PissedConsumer1967527

For one I don't have the virus and two, if everyone else has a mask on I'm protected from anyone who may be sick. Should be my right to choose whether or not I want to wear a stupid mask.

Tell All of that to their Corporate Headquarters. Their contact information is either found on This website or online

Tonight, I was in the Winston-Salem store, where I have shopped off and on for years. I was trying to feed my family and buy a few groceries before WF closed, but a WF employee had other ideas. He told me it was the policy that everyone in the store wear a mask. I told...

To "Yanelis": Except for the fact that we all start dying when we are born, I am not "actually dying" of "COVID" or any other supposed malady. I also urge you to do some research on the PCR process/test, which is driving the current "covid" narrative.

To "Ha": Thank you for pointing out that part of this psychological operation is being "dumb" and not smart. I just don't agree with that, though. I'm not dumbing myself down to help others feel better.

I also don't want you to dumb yourself down. As a woman, I have understood for many years that some in society want me to "act dumb," but I have three academic degrees--I'm hoping that all will "act smart" and stopping feeling as though any of us have to be stupid.

Harassment for not wearing a mask

At first my exemption card was accepted. After some weeks, it no longer was.

User's recommendation: Send corporate management a letter, go shopping with others who don't wear masks; shop elsewhere.
