Amazon.com Inc. now owns Whole Foods and runs its own delivery service. Starting Thursday, Instacart said it will begin separating itself from Whole Foods and eventually no longer let its customers order from the Amazon-owned grocer through its app or website, the company said. The 1,415 part-time employees that Instacart hires to pick and pack grocery orders inside some Whole Foods stores will also be given the option in the coming months to transfer to another store or leave their jobs, with either a transfer bonus or severance pay, Instacart said.

The blanket warning, precipitated by an E.coli outbreak in 11 states and Canada that has made at least 50 people ill, was issued on Tuesday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC and industry officials said evidence pointed to the central coast of California as the probable source of the outbreak. Large chain grocers such as Whole Foods Market, owned by Amazon.com Inc , and nationwide salad retailers such as Chopt and Fresh & Co told Reuters they stopped selling romaine as soon as the warning was issued.

The US credit card industry was a very late adopter of security chips, lagging the EU by a decade or so; when they did roll out chips, it was a shambolic affair, with many payment terminals still not using the chips, and almost no terminals requiring a PIN (and some require a PIN and a signature, giving rise to the curiously American security protocol of chip-and-PIN-and-swipe-and-sign). The adoption of security chips has not slowed credit card fraud, either. 60,000,000 US credit cards were compromised in the past 12 months and 90% of those were chip-enabled. The majority of compromised cards were stolen by infected point-of-sale terminals. The US has the worst credit card security in the world. The findings come from a Gemini Advisory report, which blames a "lack of chip compliance" in merchants for the rise. Based on the proprietary Gemini Advisory telemetry data collected from various dark-web sources over several years, we have determined that in the past 12 months at least...

Eating locally reduces your ecological footprint, but studies show what you eat may be even more important. Humans have been moving food around the world for thousands of years. Toward the end of the second century BC, merchants traveled along the Silk Road, transporting noodles from Xi’an, grapes from Dayuan and nutmeg from the Moluccas Islands to eager buyers along its 4,000-mile network. While it’s possible to trace the evolution of food through that matrix of ancient caravan routes that linked China to the West, it’s hard to measure its environmental impact. It’s likely that, as with any road, wildlife corridors were disrupted. But greenhouse gas emissions were fairly low, consisting of the methane from the belches and farts of the horses, yaks and Bactrian camels, and the fires that humans burned along the way.Fast-forward to the 20th-century US. Modern transportation and the rise of post-World War II suburban life changed the agricultural trade — and the way we at...

Amazon, including subsidiaries such as Whole Foods and temp work programs, will pay $15 an hour or more to all its U.S. workers. This comes as Amazon is facing increasing scrutiny over how its workers are treated and paid. Senator Bernie Sanders, for example, recently introduced legislation to end what he calls “corporate welfare” — and it’s pretty clear who he had in mind, since the bill was titled Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies (BEZOS).

As the tide of public opinion turns against monopolism, Amazon has become the poster child for irredeemable, late-stage capitalism; the company's ham-fisted attempts to burnish its reputation have not stemmed the tide. As a result, union drives among Amazon workers -- including those at Amazon subsidiaries like Whole Foods -- have gained steam. Like other giants -- McDonald's, Walmart, etc -- Amazon is staunchly opposed to unionization by its workforce. In a 45-minute video aimed at Amazon managers and leaked to Gizmodo, the company sets out a playbook for suppressing unionization drives. Gizmodo did not release the video in order to protect its source, but it does describe each of the video's six sections in detail, and supplements it with screenshots (Amazon accused Gizmodo of "cherry-picking" in its characterization of the video, but declined to release the video in full, or clarify what the video's actual message was). Here are a few of the (extensive) examples “that can...
