Meijers Store Complaint - My ruined Thanksgiving
COLUMBUS, OHIO -- As a long time shopper at Meijers on Broad St In Columbus, Ohio I was appalled at the treatment I received when I reported to the manager about what happened to me on Thanksgiving. As I always shop there, that is where I purchased my Thanksgiving Turkey.
I picked a large turkey out of the lot of them and paid for it and took it home. Come Thanksgiving morning. I proceeded in making my dressing, stuffing the turkey and put it in the oven.
I was having dinner guest of about 20 people for dinner and wanted everything to be just right. I let the turkey cook as normal and poured the drippings out several times to make my gravy with.
Everyone started arriving and we at that time carved the turkey. At the first bite of that turkey everyone started going for the water. That turkey was so hot that it would burn your mouth and I do not mean by the heat of it.
None of my guest could even eat it. The gravy over the potatoes was just as hot and you can only imagine the dressing that came out of the center of that bird.
We had to throw it away. No one could eat it. My dinner party was ruined. So we went to Dennys and I paid for turkey dinner for all my guest. I was so embarrassed, to say the least.
I went to the manager of the Meijer's store and told him my dilemma. He then informed me that what I had selected was a Cajun style turkey. I had never even heard of anything other than a good old fashioned regular turkey.
Anyway he was very abrupt with me. Said that I should have read the package closer and I would have known what I was buying. Treated me like some stupid person that really did not know what they were doing. Again he had embarrassed me.
The turkeys needed to be clearly marked and put in their own location for people that wanted that type of turnkey instead of thrown in with the regular turkeys.
The manager and this experience has me very upset and doubtful that they will ever get my business again... thank you for letting me advise the people to Watch Out For cajun turkeys in your grocery store.
