Grocery Shrink Ray Shaves An Ounce Of Precious Vegetables From Reader’s Diet

Reader Jen admits that her diet is not perfect, but she does eat some vegetables. She enjoys buying Birdseye microwaveable frozen vegetables, the Steamfresh kind that cook right in the handy bag. Only the company has taken away a precious ounce of veggies by deploying the Grocery Shrink Ray on her veggie pouch of choice.

“The old bags feel full and fluffy at 12 oz (340g) while the new bags are limp and deflated at 10.8 oz (306g),” Jen notes, snapping some pictures to show us the difference.





“Boo for less healthy food in my otherwise junk food diet,” Jen writes. Boo indeed.
