IFixit Banana Teardown Reveals Yellow Components

iFixit got an exclusive look into a banana today, doing one of their teardowns. The results are interesting, but I'm disappointed there's no bill of materials and cost breakdown. What's the deal? Do they get paid by Dole?

Come on, all I want to know is how much do they really cost. They are turning kids in tropical countries into slaves just to get cheaper bananas, but what's the real cost? 'Cause the bananas don't seem that much cheaper. Why are we still paying so much for bananas when you got them made by little slave kids? What are your overheads? [ifixit]
