According to 1 News Now, animal products are being pulled from shelves after being “stickered” by activists.

The stickers have slogans such as “WARNING: THIS PACKAGE CONTAINS THE BODY OF SOMEONE WHO DID NOT WANT TO DIE.”

The activists contest that they aren’t damaging the product inside the package, only placing the sticker on the outside. They also claim it is an effective form of activism.

The supermarket chains targeted are worried about copycats placing unsavory items in the product themselves, following the needle in the strawberries incident that occurred in Australia last year.

Supermarkets in New Zealand are going to be beefing up security to combat the activism. With a 1 News Now reporting criminal charges could be laid and Foodstuffs supermarket arguing it amounts to theft.

Do you think “stickering” is an effective form of activism? Or do you feel like its vandalism? Let us know in the comments below.
