Fruit should never be wrapped in a tray meant for ground beef. Especially bananas. This excessive packaging is just ludicrous, unless there are people who actually eat peels and want them super sterile. Also, who's in the back on wrap duty? An intern? Since Flickr user alison*h spotted this madness in Dundee, Scotland the grocery store started applying sticky labels directly to bananas. [via Food-Notes]
