TSD Sale & Distribution - Too Much Fat on Chicken
Frozen chicken leg and thigh quarters - Complaint
SPRINGDALE, ARKANSAS -- Yesterday I bought a 10 pound bag of frozen chicken thigh/leg quarters from a Sav-Mor store in Pompano Beach, Fl. When I got home I discovered they had been thawed and refrozen.
It was 1 big clump of chicken parts all frozen together. I placed them in the sink filled with cold water to thaw. When thawed they all had fat, I mean fat skins and all the fat skin taken from the back rolled up in the center of the quarters. I cut those pieces out and weighed them, mind you not the skin covering the legs or thighs, just the extra rolled up fat. That fat weighed 15.6 ounces, again not counting the skin of the quarters. The skins of the legs and thighs weighed 19.2 ounces.
They leave the back bone and tail intact. So with the back bone, leg bone and the thigh bone, and all the fat this is a very poor buy and a very poor source to buy from.
