Crappy Chicken Package
Posted by Lovmedo on 06/07/2011
Always bought whole cut up chicken in past that included legs, so disappointed in this package of two skinny breasts and much back portion...no legs or wings. Good-Bye forever Wal-Mart and Tyson.

Hello again to Jewel Foods and Perdue Chicken. Shopped Wal-Mart for twelve years, no longer!

So does WalMart own Tyson Foods now? Seems that the complaint should be with Tyson Foods alone, WalMart is just the seller.

Walmart didn't package the chicken. They just sell Tyson products. I don't see why you would stop shopping at Walmart over a package of Tyson chicken

I think Walmart carries cheaper versions of brand names that are packaged especially for Walmart. Have you had problems with Tyson chicken from other stores? I buy both Tyson and Perdue at my supermarket and haven't noticed any decrease in quality.

Tyson chicken always seems to have an inferior quality compared to Purdue. When you compare them side by side Tyson has a "left over" look where Purdue is fresh with a more yellow skin. I always check the food circulars to see who has the best price. This week Shop-Rite had Purdue with 40% off. At this price I stocked up and my freezer is packed. They also had ribs on sale. Now I'm ready for the pool side BBQ. P.S. Venice yes you are invited.
Posted by Venice09 on 2011-06-08:
Ooooo.. Thanks, ok! I love BBQ chicken.

I usually stock up on Perdue when it's 40% or 50% off in Shop Rite, but I haven't been doing it lately because I have a bad feeling about my refrigerator. It's living on borrowed time, and I just know it's going to give out on the hottest day of the summer.

I've never compared Tyson and Perdue side by side, but I have been satisfied with my Tyson purchases. I will admit that Perdue in my favorite brand though.

Just more proof of the garbage that walmart scams upon the people of the USA. Anyone want to bet that this chicken doesn't come from China. The slave labor must be keeping the chicken feed for themselves and not giving it to the chickens, hence, skinny chicken.

Now if the rest of the people stop shopping at walmart, we can stop giving our hard earned tax dollars to communist China in exchange for skinny chicken and other cheap products.

The few cents that is saved at Walmart is lost a hundred fold in the devaluation of the dollar due this cheap walmart obsession.

walmart does not package tyson products. they are pre packaged in the factory. at my local walmart, tyson has several types of pre-packaged chick. some with whole chickens, and some with select pieces. i susp[ect you picked up one that was NOT the whole chicken, but select pieces.

walmart rocks!!

Walmart has gone the way of Sears, if a business wants to sell to walmart, they do in under walmart's terms..everything to cut costs.

Excellent, FaFaFhooey and jkt. Why anyone continues to give their hard earned dollars to Walmart amazes me. Imagine what would happen if everyone Just Said No to Walmart?

That was my point, jkt. I know Walmart doesn't package Tyson chicken, but Tyson might package it according to Walmart's specs, so it can be sold at a cheaper price.

Gold Leaf Chicken by Tyson Is Not Fit for Dogs!!!
Posted by Purityusa on 10/04/2013
NATIONWIDE -- This Gold leaf chicken brand is made by Tyson and both chicken brands are equally inadequate for consumption. This chicken is still sold even after the chickens are ridden with disease but not before they are inhumanely killed.

Truth is they should have never even been bred. For Tyson it is all about the dollar and these sick souls are ruthless liars and will say anything to shift the blame of the poisonous deadly chicken cartel operation. No longer can we trust food is inspected properly because the inspectors get a kick back from Tyson to pass the deadly meat through inspection without inspection.

I am a vegan and wish my dogs could be. These days no meat is safe unless you raise it your self and make it kosher yourself by knowing what you feed the animal and giving it a clean supreme humane departure. If not you should not eat meat. All chicken from Tyson is filled with pestilence, disease, torturous abuse for a profit. They don't care what it does to the consumer because they cover their [snip]through deception and the only way to stop b the evil there is to stop letting them feed us.

Tyson is a dangerous sect that must be shut down. If you buy their products you are fueling their evil and their counterpart Monsanto who genetically modifies all food in order to take out six billion people to usher in the new world order.

tyson chicken is one of the best chicken i have ever had! on occassion i purchase some free range natural fed chicken, and find no difference. well except in price.

A complaint filed by someone with a vested interest in denigrating normal people who do not believe in abnormal practices, viz. vegetarianism.
Posted by BigAl on 2013-10-07:
I would not worry too much about your dogs eating Tyson chicken. Dogs hunt in packs and they seek out the lame and sick animals to eat. So maybe Tyson chicken is preferred by them.

Buyer Beware!!
Posted by on 04/23/2008
USA -- After experiencing this problem at Walmart first, I figured that was the problem but after getting freezer burned chicken breasts from King Soopers/Kroger and Safeway it seems to be a problem with all grocery stores and brands like Tyson Chicken.

They come in 5-7 pound plastic ziplock style bags and you really have to look close to see if the chicken is bad because of the Brand name and all of the other information they put on the bags. I know, keep your receipt and take it back if this happens but to the person not aware of this problem it could ruin a good cookout!

Just imagine if you already have a backyard full of hungry friends and family and you then notice the awful looking and smelling pieces of chicken. You now have to take the apron and chef hat off and go back to the store. Who needs that? I mean even if you are trying some remedial, Cooking Class 101 dish like "Wishbone Chicken" (chicken breast marinated in Italian Dressing) to a more advanced "Ranchalina Glazed Chicken" you don't want to be serving it up on a bad bird do you?

The easiest way to avoid this problem would be to buy the fresh stuff right from the meat department. You may pay a little more but it will save you from a backyard BBQ nightmare.

Trust me.

Good post zzrock. I've always been leery of the frozen bagged chicken, now you've confirmed my suspicions. Thanks for the info!

I haven't experienced this problem with frozen chicken, but I'll consider it next time. The best thing to do is to buy your chicken the day of the cookout - second to that buy it in advance in bulk, then vacuum pack it.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
i dont know whats worse..freezer burnt chicken,or burnt chicken on the grill.

VH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Principissa on 2008-04-23:
My friend had the exact same problem with her frozen chicken breasts. They looked awful. She did get a full refund from Kroger, but still, when you pay money for a food product you expect to get one you can consume. Those little breaded chicken strips they have are great! We actually had those for lunch today with a salad.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
I'll have to try those, Princi.
Thanks, Wax.
UR, I was trying to buy in BULK. I have no use for any kind of vacuum gadget and any decent cook wouldn't buy the meat the day of the big cookout. Ever heard of marinading meat OVERNIGHT?
Try using that Ducane for more than Hot Dogs my friend......

had some fabulous salmon last nite, actually.
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-23:
Excellent post Zzrock and I couldn't agree more with you. I try to buy everything out of the meat case if I can. (VH)
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
Off the Ducane? How did you keep it from sticking and how long did you have it on the grill?
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
Thanks Ejack and if I get another batch of bad chicken parts I'm going to go back and kick that meat department guy's......... Hey, that your line, huh?
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-23:
LOL Zzrock!! When it comes to possible salmonella poisoning and god forbid botchilism...you can use my line and kick that meat guys' ass!

Good post ZZ...do you watch H3ll's Kitchen with Chef Gordon Ramsey? It was on lastnight...and one of the guy's served up raw chicken to a little kid...needless to say, Chef Ramsey had a few choice words for him!
Posted by Principissa on 2008-04-23:
I watched that last night DB, it's one of the few shows I actually watch. I was totally grossed out by that. But it was really funny when Gordon was cursing him out.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
DB, I try to watch it but it is to mean spirited even for me. Raw chicken to a kid? No way.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
I saw that, DB. (You're going to kill someone!!) Can you imagine working for someone like that Chef. I hope he tones it down in his real restaurants, lol. But, I can't even imagine some of the people on that show running one of his kitchens.
Posted by Principissa on 2008-04-23:
Sometimes I think he does go a little too far, but I think that's just to boost up the drama. They must make those people sign contracts or something because if someone ever started yelling in my face like that the burnt burgers would be the least of their worries.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
I love that show! I can't help it; I like his meaness and the fact that he can get away with it. Unfortunately, I have not been able to watch it this season because of my work schedule (which is why my "lunch" was so late yesterday). I do think that the network probably asked Ramsey to overdo it. I love reality T.V. but I watched a special once that showed how reality shows are scripted first and the rest is "see what happens". I still watch them though when I am not at work.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
Totally agree, Princi. They have to pay those people something, but don't some of them seem a little too dense to run an actual kitchen alone?
Posted by Principissa on 2008-04-23:
diane, I wouldn't trust them to feed my dog. I'm honestly amazed that some of them even knew how to boil water.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-23:
He overacts like that to see how much pressure they can work under because it's a high pressure career. If he talked to employee's like that, he'd be sued...I forgot what he kept referring to the women as on the last series, but it was degrading...I think it's the same with Simon on American Idol...the criticizes them because if they want to make it in the music business, they have to be tough.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-23:
I was grossed out with the girl on his last show that took the spaghetti out of the garbage and re-boiled it and served it to the customers...and he kept her!
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
I saw that one too and was disgusted by that. It makes you wonder what people in real resteraunts do. I refuse to eat in a place that has a health rating lower than a 92.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
I know, Princi, it is pretty sad. I know I could do 100% better than most of them--but I'd have to tell Ramsay to step off (or something a bit harsher that I can't say here) if he got in my face. After raising a family, I could not put up with his crap for one minute--not from him or anyone, for that matter.

The sad truth is that I managed an office full of twits that I could have totally yelled at--but didn't, of course. I sort of know how he feels--he is just able to do what many wish they could sometimes. Those darn labor laws get us every time. That must be why I like the show.
Posted by Principissa on 2008-04-23:
diane I do too. After being a mom for 8 years now I have the patience of a Saint.
LOL diane, there was many a time when I was working and I just wanted to scream at people. "YOU CAME INTO THE ER FOR A HANGNAIL, THANKS FOR WASTING 2 HOURS OF MY TIME."
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
Princi, LOL. I can only imagine who shows up for those treatments. I wonder what they do in a real emergency?
Posted by Slimjim on 2008-04-23:
Good tip. Nothing worse than bad (or raw) chicken smelling all nasty on the Ducane. Have you tried Bertollis?

Why Slim, yes I have and quite frankly the portions are too small unless you eat like an "impovershed super model".
Posted by Slimjim on 2008-04-23:
You sure UR on the right thread there friend?
Posted by Slimjim on 2008-04-23:
So they didn't stack up huh zz? Perhaps Weight Watchers offers something. I've seen high octane (and assuming high mass) career types recommend them here.
Posted by Principissa on 2008-04-23:
zz I bought one of those Bertoli meals, and I could have eaten the whole thing myself. It was good though, but you definitely need to serve it with a salad and bread.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
I do recall that post, Slim. I just can't get into eating suped up TV Dinners, you know? I can do a stir fry or fry up something before the apple crisp dessert in those TV dinners turns into molten hot lava!
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
I hear you Princi, they are good but you'd better have some sides to go with it or someone is going to still be hungry.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-23:
ZZ...I took that Catfish that I cooked up lastnight to my Dad...since he said he liked what he had...I was sitting there watching Judge Joe Brown...and looked over and seen my Dad eating that Catfish...COLD!..I said, "Dad, didn't you heat that up? It's fully cooked, but it's cold"...he said, "That's ok, it's good this way"...ewwwwwww, I told him it was bad enough when it was hot. Anyway, I stopped at the store on the way home and discovered Gorton's Grilled Cheese Fish Fillets...it is breaded fish with cheese inside...so, that's what I'm CAREFULLY eating now and it's really good.

Perhaps you should lessen your portion size, might do your overall health some good.

DB, you have wierd tastes but then I pour pickle juice over my salads as a dressing and a few drops on my fish doesn't hurt either.
Cold fried fish? C'mon DB's Dad! Cold chicken is good.

Oh yes...bagged frozen chicken freaks me out...especially when it's says, "made with rib meat." EWWWWWWWW!
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-23:
ZZ--I'm with you--I cook just about all my meals from scratch. It really doesn't take that long and tastes so much better.

I don't know if you belong to Costco, but their fresh chicken breasts are pretty reasonable. They even sell Organic packages now, as well as whole Organic chickens. I love to roast a chicken and then use it for several meals. That's a good money saver too.
Posted by *Brenda* on 2008-04-23:
Hey ZZ, I know you said you don't need a vacuum gadget but I Reynolds makes this nifty little hand held vacuum packer called the Handi-Vac. It's only like $15.00 and it fits in the kitchen drawer instead of taking up valuable counter space. You use it with the Handi-Vac bags. I use it a lot so I can buy in bulk. I bought 3 lbs of cheese the other day at BJ's. How long do you think that'll last 2 people...? A LONG time!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-23:
3 lbs. of cheese wouldn't last a week, with just myself here.
