Trader Joe's Will Remove "Racist Branding and Packaging"

A recent petition has called for Trader Joe's to eliminate their ethnic-sounding branding, such as "Trader José," "Trader Giotto's," and "Trader Ming's." The petition is seeking 5,000 signatures and has nearly 3,000 (checked around 3:30 on 7/20.)

Trader Joe's has stated that they are already in the process rebranding those products, although they don't have an exact date, they say the work should be complete "very soon"
