Bought a pound of ground beef chuck at Walmart in Jacksonville, it was stringy fat, grizzle and bone. Crappy is right.

This is the worst bacon we have ever cooked. It wasn't even a decent slice of it to cook. It was more like the bottom of the barrel and thrown in a bag and sealed shut. It smoked the whole house and stunk while cooking. I don't know how you process your stuff but this was the worst. If it was my company I would be ashamed to sell any thing like this. Sorry I won't buy this bacon again. I don't want anything for this. Your inspectors just need to know and inspect it a whole lot more closely. Thank You for your time. Martha

Where's the meat?
Posted by Imjustasteph on 05/05/2007
Bought a 12oz package of Ole Carolina Hickory Smoked Sliced Bacon today at WalMart.

I brought it home and hubby decided to use it for BLT's. He started to take it out of the pack while I put away the rest of the groceries.

He stops me to show me what he has. The bacon is EXTREMELY fatty (the slice veiwed in the 'representative slice' tear-away hole is much less so). In many places the 'slices' are one stringy piece, and not seperated from one another.

Was NOT equal to what the quality of this product has been before (have bought this brand name a few times). This brand name is cheaper than many others, and I have often bought it for that reason. It has never been of an equal quality with the other brands that I sometimes buy, but this time was of even lesser than usual.

(Usually for such as sandwiches or breakfasts I buy the better stuff; this was actually intended for potato soup. I can usually get away with using this in soup; this time I would've been disappointed even had I used it for that.)

I think this is true with most brands of bacon I buy. One day, it's perfect, the next time you buy it, it's too fatty.

I prefer center cut bacon for BLT's, which I LOVE occasionally.

Mmmmmm, BLT's. Now you've made me hungry!

I've never yet found bacon consistent no matter the price or the brand, from the most expensive down to the store brand. That representative slice doesn't tell any of us much... except that it looks nice in the package.
Posted by Hugh_Jorgen on 2007-05-06:
If you can find a box marked "bacon ends and pieces" you will save quite a bit of money and the quality is usually very good, they are just pieces of bacon that were miscut or just not "pretty" enough for a clear pack. But for cooking in recipies it's just fine.
Posted by imjustasteph on 2007-05-10:
Hugh I'd love to know where to find that!! I haven't ever seen it!
Posted by *Brenda* on 2007-05-11:
Try asking the deli imjustasteph! If they sell bacon back there (usually the thick cut stuff) they probably have some.
Posted by imjustasteph on 2007-05-15:
Thanks for the suggestion Brenda!
Posted by Starlord on 2007-05-19:
Aw-w-w-w-w-w, poor baby, you can't use bacon because it is not pretty enough. You really must have led a sheltered life. We shop a lot at our local IGA store, and once in a while they have Covered Wagon brand bacon on sale, and we get a box. It is sold during these sales for $10 per 10 lb box. Most of the time, the strips of bacon are pretty much like you would fix for breakfast, or even fora BLT sandwich. Sometimes, the slices are as thick as three or four slices of regular bacon. I am not so picky that I can't eat bacon if it is not absolutely perfect. As long as it is crisp and has good taste, I don't care if it looks like Osama bi Laden. Plus we only pay $1 a pound. If we had more freezer space, I'd get two or three boxes.
Posted by imjustasteph on 2007-05-19:
Starlord, I really can't recall saying anything about the look of the bacon. I said that it was extremely fatty. I'm sure you know that when you cook bacon, the fat changes, some sort of dissolving, some shrinking, etc.
The bacon was next to impossible to turn, because it was similar to 'turning' over pieces of yarn....try doing that with a spatula!!
The end result is, we had the choice between mostly-burnt or almost-cooked.
If I cared what the bacon LOOKED like, I wouldn't buy the cheap stuff anyway. I care that after it was cooked we had next to nothing left, and what we did have was hardly fit for consumption.

I too purchased this product and it was mostly fat. I took a picture of it to send to the company asking if they would like me to make them a FLT(fat,lettuce,tomato) sandwich. Dont buy this product, it sucks.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-11-24:
Have you noticed when you look through that little viewing window on the package, they "Fold" the bacon strip around another to make it look more meaty than fat. I always peek down side the front window where you can see a whole slice, which will show what fat is on it and what meat is on it. Viewing them through those two little back windows mean nothing because they expect you too look through those. Sometimes they even just put littlepieces of the meat in view of those two little back windows and when you get it home, those slices are all chopped up covering the fat.

Basher.. I always suspected that you were a window peeper..
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-11-24:
Yup...gotta check out that meat before buying!
Posted by old fart on 2008-11-24:
I'll bet you squeeze the tomatos and then pick out the ones next to it too...
Posted by Starlord on 2008-11-24:
I understand about the being too fatty. But I was raised ina frugal home of necessity, and learned early on about 'ends and pieces. Hugh hit the nail on the head. Most grocery meat counters will have ends and pieces for people who can't pay the high prices to get perfect-looking bacon. Farmer John's has about the best, and locally there is an outfit that vacuum seals the ends and pieces in a lump, and it is also too fatty. No bargain there. I misspoke and apologize.

what's with the necro?

reminds me of the Jimmy Dean Sausage Complaint:

Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-11-24:
They also sell bacon ends and pieces her too. I used to see deli counters sell ends and pieces of lunch meats. when the end pieces were too small to slice through the slicer...or the "Heel" as I would call it and they would have odds and ends of cheese as well. I don't see that anymore and I think it's because they just cut it up now for Anti-Pasta salads and charge like $4.99/lb for it, insead of selling them cheap as ends and pieces.

Fat & Parts Added
Posted by Msf6645 on 09/30/2009
I purchased a 10lb bag of Goldleaf leg quarters and as I was repackaging them for freezing I found a large chunk of fat, not attached to anything. Also in the package was a neck with lots of skin and fat on it. I feel like these parts were added as filler to make it to the 10 lbs.

So I feel like I was cheated and did not get 10 lbs of leg quarters.

did you contact the company?
Posted by Skye on 2009-09-30:
Yes, you should contact the company. They can't help you, unless you notify them.

Good luck!

I once bought a bag of lump charcoal, the only kind I use. In the bag I found a partially melted bottle. WAs my reaction that I thought they stuck said bottle in bag to meet the weight on the label? Of course not. I contacted the company and suggested they keep an eye on the charcoal burners working for them a bit better. They sent me a coupon for a free bag of the charcoal. I still feel they are the best product of their kind on the market, and feel that the bottle was just an abberation. Contact the company and let them know about the unusual inclusions. They can't fix it if they don't know it's broken.
Posted by jktshff1 on 2009-10-01:
Starlord, what kind of charcoal is it and why do you like it so much?
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-10-01:
You buy chicken that is processed in a slaughterhouse and don't think once in a while you will get an off piece or two? Have you ever weighted those 10lb bags? Some are close to 10 pounds, some are more. When they are more, so you pay extra?

Today I bought a one-pound roll of prepackaged 93/7 ground beef, and found many chunks of unattached fat in it!! Gross!!! I bought it at Wal-Mart in Georgetown, Delaware.

My husband bought ground beef at WalMart, distributed by TDS Distributors out of South Dakota, which had tiny bits of shredded plastic throughout the meat!! The label is teal green FYI.

make sure to contact them
and let them know in case this is a manufacturing issue. they can research this and discover if this has happened to other packages in the same lot number. you will need the label to give them this info.

The Worst Bacon I Have Ever Bought
Posted by Meslenning on 02/22/2014
SPRINGDALE, ALASKA -- The fat content was 90% in a one pound package. How can this company be proud of distributing such an inferior product. I bought two packages of this bacon, but I won't be buying any more. The price is way to high and the actual amount of pork meat is way to small. The package looks great in the store, but the surprise you get at home is very disappointing. I will look on any package of meat in the future for the words TSD Sales and Distribution, if I find those words, I will not purchase that product.

Did This Bacon Come From A Razor Back???
Posted by Skeeldj on 08/28/2013
SPRINGDALE, ARKANSAS -- Of course, it's BLT time, fresh tomatoes out of the garden. I was in Walmart and checked out the bacon. Almost $5.00 a pound for all brands. Corn King was highlighted with a good buy sign. Slightly less than the rest on price. Grabbed up 3 packs, got the rest of my stuff and headed home.

I opened 1 package and put it all on a cookie sheet, a small cookie sheet. Showed my husband and looked at the package, ONLY 12 ounces, not a pound.! Very fatty and stringy. Cooked in oven 430 degrees, as I learned in working in restaurants for many years.
We ended up with 3 { three} sandwiches out of it. take a bite, can't bite it off, to stringy, even though I tried to make it very crispy.

Everyone has to make a profit, I understand that. Times are hard. But to mislead the public with their packaging and inferior product, Just is not right.

I would take the rest of it back to the store, but it's 40 miles round trip, so what am I saving?

I would like my money back, plus mileage and time wasted, pain and suffering for having to eat that garbage!

Maybe you should have gotten it at Costco.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2013-08-28:
The 12 oz package has been out there for quite awhile now. I always buy the Sugardale thick sliced bacon. I only had one package before, that had slices so thin you can see through them. I emailed them with a photo of the slices...they were very nice about it. They didn't understand how they passed through their quality department like that. In return, they shipped me 5 or 6 packages of their thick sliced bacon (1.5 lbs each).

You might want to go to Corn Kings' website and let them know about this. They can't fix it if they don't know about it.
Posted by trmn8r on 2013-08-29:
I don't buy any food at WallsMart. None. While a BLT with fresh tomatoes sounds delicious in principle, concocting something from produce and bacon from WM blows the appealing vision all to heck.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2013-08-29:
Or buy your bacon from a regular supermarket next time. I was never impressed with Walmart's meat, except for the frozen chicken breasts and hamburger patties. But Corn King is a brand that's carried at many places. Probably bacon from the deli counter would be the best, although it costs more. At least you'd get more meat and less fat.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2013-08-30:
I agree with Debtorbasher about Sugardale. They have great bacon, as well as sister brand Superior's. But I don't know how far away from Ohio FreshMark (parent company of Sugardale and Superior) distributes its products. Perhaps a national brand like Oscar Mayer would be better than Corn King.
Posted by R Young on 2013-11-27:
I bought two pound packages of Corn King bacon. I diced and cooked one package and to put on a salad. I tasted three or four small pieces and to my REALLY UNHAPPY mouth I realized the lazy people at Corn King had left the rind on (unchewable skin). I hope they get a hernia carrying their money to the bank this time

Corn King Lean Ham
Posted by Jimmykatros607 on 06/05/2013
I bought a so-called lean Corn King ham. I don't think they know what lean means. it was so full of fat I couldn't eat it. I gave it to my dogs over a 5 day period so they wouldn't get the runs from so much fat in it !!!!!!!!!!!

Ole Carolina Hickory Smoked Sliced Fat.
Posted by Kerensa1969 on 03/02/2013
SPRINGDALE, ARKANSAS -- Last week I bought (5) 1 pound packages of Ole Carolina Hickory Smoked Bacon at Price Rite. The representative slices looked fine, plenty of meat with a balance of fat.

I opened the first pound, and the representative slice was nothing like the rest of the pound. It was a different size and shape and actually had meat in it. The rest of the pound had a bare sliver of meat less than a quarter of an inch wide at its thickest point, tapering to nothing in about two inches. The rest of the pounds were equally misrepresented, one had No meat, the others were at least 90% fat. In all cases the representative slice appeared to be not more than 50% fat.

I find this to be highly misleading, and deceptive, and urge everyone to realize what the bacon looks like in the package is not going to be what you get. You may as well just buy lard. It appears you can rely on Ole Carolina to be misleading.

I have heard a lot of complaints about TSD products, including that lumps of alleged meat turned out to be lumps of fat.

Plastering decent looking slices on the end to deceive the customer - that borders on criminal. Thanks for letting us know.

I would take that pile of crud back to the store and demand a refund, unless you decide to take it to an authority as evidence.

american style bacon is mostly fat. try finding a meat market that can cut you a more select style of bacon.
Posted by Jeannie on 2014-02-10:
I don't understand your problem. I have been using TSD bacon for awhile and I am happy with the quality and value. I buy the thick sliced bacon and my family loves it.

I bought two packs of bacon that was gross. Fat, fat and more fat. Try to contact them (if you can find the phone number). Do your self a favor and buy bacon from your butcher not from a discount store that sells the slauter house scraps as bacon.

american style bacon is often mostly fat. european bacon is mostly meat. try finding a butcher that can hand cut a more select style of bacon.
Posted by trmn8r on 2013-02-12:
I would never ever buy bacon, or any meat for that matter, from a "discount store". There are a lot of complaints about TSD products. I've seen complaints about both bacon and hamburger - as a regular hamburger consumer, the vision of a huge clump of fat in my hamburger grosses me out.

When I buy bacon I try to inspect the back critically (those pound packages), and if it looks like it is mostly fat I move on.
Posted by ok4now on 2013-02-12:
The only bacon I buy is Oscar Mayer Selects Smoked Uncured. It contains no artificial preservatives and NO nitrates or nitrites added. It is low sodium 270mg and has very little fat. It is sold only in 12oz not the standard 16oz but the price is the same so you're getting less product. Shop Rite recently had this on sale at $3.00 a pack so I stocked up. If you like bacon you will love this!

I opened a 1 lb package of Bacon and was totally turned off by the fat portion of each slice. Four cooked slices produced approximately 1/3 cup of grease. I purchased 4 packages of product and had similar results.

Bar code = 0 74700 1003 2.
