Store ad mistakenly calls New Mexico an island

A grocery store sign promoting a New Mexico staple has a lot of New Mexicans scratching their heads.
A sign from an unknown location in Texas is advertising “Hatch peppers.” At the very bottom of the sign, you can see it says “produce of the island of New Mexico.”
As it turns out, the sign was posted at a Kroger store in Dallas, Texas. The post has been shared over 12,000 times on social media with many New Mexicans poking fun at the picture.
