Walmart - "New" Mushrooms in Grocery Department
Sliced Mushrooms in Produce - Complaint
DIXON, CALIFORNIA -- "new" pre-packaged sliced and whole mushrooms in the produce department. Used to have the blue styrofoam containers from Monterey brand or "Sams Club", now only offer brown soggy cardboard containers wrapped in plastic. Sliced or whole. These mushrooms are filled with dirt. Whereas the Monterey brand or store brand in the blue styrofoam were at least clean and free of dirt. Cleaning sliced mushrooms is next to impossible and not worth the time. And when I say dirt, I don't mean the occasional small particle, I mean out of the ground into the box dirt. Do not buy.
It's not a huge deal, just another small step towards poor overall quality of Walmart products, and I assume they saved 2 cents per box. I'm sure dirt contributes to net weight.
