I work in Trader Joe's – the most stolen item isn't what you'd expect and it's not wine or any alcohol

A TRADER Joe’s worker has revealed that meat is the most stolen item.

The unnamed Redditor, who apparently works in a store in downtown Chicago, claims it’s harder for shoplifters to pinch a bottle of wine.

The worker said the vacuum-packed steaks can be “pocketed easily” into thieves’ pockets.

He added: “Shoplifters tend to think we watch the alcohol more but it’s harder to steal a bottle of wine than a pound of ground beef.”

He also revealed that some Trader Joe’s stores have crew members on the lookout, while others have security guards.

And, the worker claimed that he catches shoplifters almost every day.

Dozens of Redditors have bombarded the employee with a series of questions on the thread.

One person asked: “What is the one Trader Joe’s product that you could not live without? (Tahitian Vanilla Caramel balls for me).”

The worker responded: “Japanese Style Fried Rice. F**king awesomeness, seriously edamame and seaweed in fried rice? Delicious.”

The rice contains edamame beans – a vegetable that’s commonly used in East Asian cookery – and seaweed.

But, some Trader Joe’s employees claim the cuts of meat and frozen produce are too expensive.
