Seattle is no place to be faking local produce, as residents take food sourcing seriously. Albertsons stores are apparently also guilty, and a sting in Los Angeles found fruits and veggies being sold under false pretenses of being locally grown.
Ashley Braun at Grist pulls it all together:
"The grocery stores may argue, what's in a name? But they know exactly what's in a name: a popular cash flow. And something about an important reconnection with how our food is grown, blah blah, wah wah."
