Across the country Whole Foods is banning the sale of live lobsters.

The company says that killing lobsters is cruel and inhumane. The grocer cites a study that says lobsters can feel pain.

They will, however, continue to sell frozen and cooked lobster products.

The company's decision does not affect the Charlottesville location. That store has never sold live lobsters.
