& # 39; It's so pathetic that it's ridiculous & # 39 ;: Shoppers hit & # 39; lazy & # 39; $ 1.50 trays of chopped ONIONS sold at Coles for & # 39; tears & # 39; during cooking
- Coles has been criticized for selling tubs of pre-cut onions for $ 1.50
- The grocer advertised the plastic container as & # 39; perfectly cut without tears & # 39;
- Shoppers have labeled the product as & # 39; lazy & # 39; and campaign against the product
- But others say it's ideal for people who are unable to hack because of a disability
Australian buyers wrap $ 1.50 tubs with fresh pre-cut onions in the Coles supermarket & # 39; tears & # 39; in the kitchen.
Facebook group, Northern Beaches Clean Up Crew, posted a photo of the & # 39; lazy & # 39; item and has proposed a campaign to get them off the shelf.
& # 39; Are we really so lazy that we can no longer dice our own onions? I have not seen this before. So much unnecessary plastic! & # 39; The group wrote in a post.

& # 39; Coles, please stop selling this! If you agree, you can send a message here, & they said, and added a link to the merchant's Facebook page.
Other group members said the situation & # 39; so sad, laughable & # 39; and & # 39; let them rot on the shelves & # 39 ;.
A Coles spokesperson disagreed with the complaints and told FEMAIL that they had been selling pre-chopped mushrooms and pumpkins for many years without indignation.
Others favored the chopped pieces of products for people with disabilities who are unable to cut them themselves (stock image)
& # 39; We know that cutting onions is a task that many of our customers do not appreciate – it can literally bring them to tears & they said.
& # 39; So this is another example of where Coles did the work for you. & # 39;
They continued with the issue of plastic around the tub itself.
& # 39; All packaging for this product can be recycled via REDcycle soft plastic recycling bins available at all Coles supermarkets, & # 39; they said.
Others supported sliced vegetables as an option for people with disabilities who are unable to pick them up themselves.
& # 39; Many people with disabilities use these useful fresh products because they are physically unable to chop and peel vegetables themselves & # 39 ;, said Coles spokesperson.
But it's not just Coles that is ravaged by critics, other supermarkets also keep everything in stock, from chopped carrot to broccoli to make home cooking easier
But it is not only Coles that is ravaged by critics, other supermarkets also have everything in stock, from chopped carrot to broccoli to make home cooking easier.
& # 39; My local Woolies in Glenrose had a whole cabinet with sliced vegetables like this. You can't be that poor anyway, & a woman wrote online.
& # 39; Harris Farm does this too. For broccoli and pumpkin and anything they can imagine … while bragging about being free of plastic and with plates on the front saying you need to bring your own containers, & another person commented .
There are currently no plans to remove the pre-packaged products.
