Before yesterday, EU residents' eyes were shielded from the horror of misshapen fruit and vegetables, or "veg," in their supermarkets. As of yesterday, things have changed. New rules will permit the sale of deformed food. From the Telegraph of London:
Jim Fitzpatrick, Food and Farming Minister, said: "The new marketing regulations will help supermarkets and greengrocers label their fruit and vegetables correctly, and will provide more choice for people who aren't bothered by what shape their five a day comes in.
The article says the change affects 26 types of fruits and vegetables.
