According to the November 23 article "Whole Foods Will No Longer Let Shoppers Buy This at Any of Its Stores", Whole Foods has recalled a product. You will not be able to buy this anymore.

According to a story in the Portland Press Herald, Whole Foods made the announcement on November 21 that it will discontinue selling lobster from Maine at all of its shops across the country.

The newspaper published in Maine claims that this decision was made as a result of the Gulf of Maine fisheries recently losing two certificates for environmental sustainability.

"As part of our commitment to responsible sourcing, we only sell wild-caught seafood from fisheries that are certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or rated either 'Green' or 'Yellow' by the MBA Seafood Watch program," a Whole Foods Market spokesperson said in a statement to the Portland Press Herald. "These third-party verifications and ratings are critical to maintaining the integrity of our standards for all wild-caught seafood found in our seafood department … We are closely monitoring this situation and are committed to working with suppliers, fisheries, and environmental advocacy groups as it develops."
