Whole Foods Under Fire After Banning Poppies
Whole Foods is under fire after a decision to ban Canadian employees from wearing a Remembrance Day poppy. The company later reversed its decision.
On Friday, the House of Commons unanimously adopted a motion "to condemn Whole Foods and its owner Jeff Bezos for banning its employees from wearing poppies on their uniform".
Ontario Premier Doug Ford called the decision "disgusting and disgraceful", and said he would introduce legislation to permit the wearing of poppies.
Whole Foods Market, Inc. is an American supermarket chain headquartered in Austin, Texas. Whole Foods has 500 stores in North America and seven in the United Kingdom as of March 4, 2019.
Amazon owns the company.
