I've seen some places that are now switching to per-each pricing on fruits and vegetables, rather than per-pound. Not quite sure what this accomplishes, other than they don't need to put everyone's food on the same scale to weigh it (but presumably they were sanitizing the scale anyway).One thing I did notice in the produce section was that all of the bananas were separated into individual units. No bunches.
I suppose the concern was that folks would pick bananas off of a bunch and place them back on the display area? First time I've ever seen that. (Probably going to be saying that about a number of things in the coming months, assuming I am around to make the observation of course. )
Not separated individually, but I noticed one of the stores here is now selling bananas packaged in plastic bags only, no more free-range bunches.
