Hmm. Safeway "Eating Right"???

I rarely go to Safeway, but picked up some of their frozen pocket sandwiches that were marked "Eating Right".

First thing on the ingredient list: "Hydrogenated Soybean Oil" aka transfats.


Since when is transfat about eating right? Isn't there some kind of law about the veracity of labels?

Also, they do everything to persuade shoppers to use plastic during checkout: plastic is the default unless you ask for paper, and paper bags have no handles to them.

Now I remember why I shop Farmers Markets/WholeFoods/Trader Joe's.
