Whole Foods Announces End To Selling Foods Made With Inmate Workers

September 30, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Retailer Whole Foods Market said that by April 2016 it will stop selling foods produced using prison labor. Whole Foods made the decision following a protest rally organized by the End Mass Incarceration Houston in Houston. At present, Whole Foods sells foods produced by Haystack Mountain Goat Dairy and Quixotic Farming. Both companies have partnered with the Colorado Department of Corrections to employ prisoners to milk goats and raise fish.
