(WTNH)– Whole Foods has been receiving some backlash by people on social media.
If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them. pic.twitter.com/00YECaHB4D

CNN reports, the picture was first posted on Twitter, showing packages of pre-peeled oranges sitting in plastic containers at the store.
The original tweet by Nathalie Gordon has since received over 99,000 retweets and 95,000 favorites.
After the response to the picture, Whole Foods tweeted it was a mistake and pulled the product.
In the tweet, Whole Foods promised to leave the oranges in their “natural packaging: the peel.”
@awlilnatty Definitely our mistake. These have been pulled. We hear you, and we will leave them in their natural packaging: the peel.
