The NY Daily News comes to Brooklyn Heights to uncover the latest wrinkle in the food price explosion — shrinking packages:
NY Daily News: Food packages…: “Edy’s [ice cream] got smaller!” said Alison Koeppel, 58, as she picked up a cold container in a Brooklyn Heights Key Food supermarket. “They’re ripping us off once again.”
David Kaufman, a retired dentist from Brooklyn Heights, said he started noticing packaged food products were getting smaller several years ago.
“Soon people will be buying empty bags and empty boxes,” Kaufman said.
