I was just at the Evergreen Village (Bellevue) Safeway this morning, doing my little shopping thing. I was late — I usually do it on the weekend. While wandering around getting my goods, I noticed that the shelves in the produce aisle were looking a bit empty. I didn’t think much of it. I never come in on Mondays. Maybe this is what things look like after a weekend rush. Maybe they’re expecting a delivery soon. Maybe they had taken all the little fruits and vegetables on a field trip (AHAHAHA).
Well, just heard on the news, the reason the shelves were empty was because they found (and I quote) “a pile of fecal matter was discovered on top of some produce” (from NWCN channel) on Sunday night between 7:30 and 10:30PM. Safeway immediately shut down the produce section, turfed out the produce, disinfected the shelves, and brought new produce in. They’re also offering refunds on produce purchased last night.
