Having heard a few news stories stating that Whole Foods no longer carries "red-rated" seafood, I was a little puzzled to see farmed salmon at our local WF. Understandably some of the reports got it wrong. In fact, Whole Foods no longer carries WILD red-rated seafood. Whole Foods continues to carry Farmed Atlantic Salmon, which is red-rated by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, and labeled "artificial color added"
No one at our store knew why they made an exception for Farmed Atlantic Salmon, and e-mails to WF received an automated "thank you" response.
Does anyone know the story here?
