“Natalie Gordon took a photo in her local brand of Wholefoods, and put it on Twitter. She wrote: “If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them.” Her photo has now been retweeted more than 500,000 times, and attracted hundreds of comments.

An overwhelming majority were shocked at yet another example of over-packaging of convenience foods. One tweeted: “They’re selling oranges already peeled in a plastic container. I’m done with the world. DONE.” Another commented: “Seriously?? Pre-peeled oranges…. Anyone who doesn’t know how to peel an orange deserves to starve.” And another added: “Pre-peeled oranges are actually a thing?! Wow. Just. Wow…”

Wholefoods, the company that was selling the oranges, responded to the tweet saying the product had been withdrawn. It Tweeted: “Definitely our mistake. These have been pulled. We hear you, and we will leave them in their natural packaging: the peel.”

    If you’re idiotic enough to actually buy a pre peeled orange, you might as
    well eat the plastic container instead.
    That orange is either terribly oxidized by the time you use it (the whole
    point of the peel is to protect it from the environment!) or more likely it
    is stuffed full of preservatives – talk about natural and healthy.

    Or just buy a orange somewhere else for
    .85 and peel it yourself. Or cut it with the peel and eat the inside. Or
    just dont eat oranges.

    Wow Anna, you Love Whole Foods? Apparently you have no idea who the CEO is.
    You guys at TYT are pathetic with your Bernie this and Bernie that yet you
    support a company like Whole foods. Go look up “progressive” and tell me
    how Whole Foods fits that model.

    Its awful.

    Older people could struggle majorly with peeling an orange, so this really
    helps them, same with people who complain about cheese coming pre-grated!
    Sure, clearly over-priced, but it’s not a stupid idea
