This definitely needs sharing!
Don’t eat anything with the “Apeel” sticker on it. It just appeared in our grocery stores. The cucumbers are not wraped in plastic but there’s a big sign saying it is coated in Apeel to protect freshness and reduce plastic waste. The cucumbers also have a sticker on them with the word Apeel. The Company is funded by Bill Gates and others and the WEF endorses it. On the website you can’t find any info about what Apeel is. Look at the frequently asked questions. They even tell you not to buy it if you’re worried.
In Canada so far it’s just on cucumbers and maybe apples. In the US it’s on avocados and apples and possibly limes, lemons, and cucumbers. The company is very mysterious about what the product actually is. And it can’t be washed off no matter how much scrubbing. It even says this on the website in the FAQ. Supposedly it can make produce last up to 3 times longer. Suddenly the price of cucumbers dropped today to just over $3 for 3 cucumbers in a pack or $1.27. They really want people to buy these cucumbers.”
