Fry's Foods Complaint - Questionable Meat Quality
MESA, ARIZONA -- We are Snowbirds from Canada. We shopped at the Fry's on Ellesworth Rd as it was close. I was amazed that it was impossible to find FRESH CHICKEN of any kind, no legs, thighs, breasts - THEY WERE ALL FROZEN AND SOME WHERE IN THE CASE - THAWING OUT. NOWHERE DOES IT SAY THAT THE IT HAS BEEN 'PREVIOUSLY FROZEN'. ALSO THE 'JOHNSONVILLE BRANDS OF SAUSAGES-SAME THING. I did ask a meat manager WHY THIS WAS - his reply was that they don't have a meat cutting dept. there and also costs - cheaper this way and that is the way it comes in.....ALSO HAVE A BEEF WITH THE BAKERY THERE - THEY PUT OUT BREAD DAILY - WE LIKE 'RYE' AND MOST OF IT HAS BEEN FROZEN AS WELL.....this is foreign to us in Canada - our stores have both FRESH AND FROZEN AND THE PROBLEM WITH BUYING THIS FROZEN STUFF IS YOU CANNOT
RE-FREEZE IT - WE LIKE TO BRING HOME 'FRESH' AND PUT INTO CONTAINERS WITH SMALLER PORTIONS TO FREEZE AND USE LATER.......MOST CANADIANS ALSO HATE THE BREAD PRODUCTS - it lacks the flavour and quality of baked bread back home. A lady told me it is in the 'milling process'. BECAUSE OF OUR COMPLAINTS WE NO LONGER SHOP AT FRY'S.....WE BUY OUR FRESH AND QUALITY MEATS WHICH ARE ALWAYS FRESH, SOME STORE MADE AND FREE OF MANY ADDITIVES AND THAT STORE IS... SPROUTS... AWESOME VEGGIES, FRUITS, MEATS - WE LOOK FOR THE SPECIALS AND SOME THINGS ARE A LITTLE MORE $$
BUT WE ARE USE TO GETTING QUALITY FOODS.
