I was in the co-op today and I have got to say that I was very disappointed. I was getting some tofu from the deli when I noticed that they had the vegan tofo in the same container as the tofu with a yogurt seasoning. I mentioned to the guy that he should not have the the two in the same dish as it creates cross contamination.
His response was 'We are not a certified Vegan kitchen and so you got to expect some cross contamination. We use the same cutting boards for both meat and vegan products so cross contamination is unavoidable."
I told him that he should put a notice up that there is cross contamination so vegans would know.
He said that vegans would not care. I asked if he was vegan, and he said 'no but I have had a lot of vegan customers over the years and you are not my first vegan customer.'
I felt like I had been lied to for the last few years I have been shopping as a vegan at the co-op because I had been told by other employees that they DO NOT cross contaminate. This is unacceptable.
