Petition urges Trader Joe to change “racist” ethnic food labels – The Denver Post | Instant News

SAN FRANCISCO – Responding to Trader Joe’s request to stop labeling international food products with ethnic-sounding names, the grocery chain said it had been in the process of repackaging these products for years and would soon finish work.

In the latest call to name brand and logos that are subject to racial fees, nearly 1,000 people have signed an online petition urging the retail giant to change the name of the product named “Trader Ming,” “Trader José,” “Trader Giotto,” or ” Trader Giotto “to refer to Chinese, Mexican or Italian food, respectively, SFGate reported.

The petition says that the labels perpetuate dangerous stereotypes.
