Ole Carolina Hickory Smoked Bacon - Complaint
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.
