Kroger Complaint - Horrible Meat!! Water added to increase weight also!
ACWORTH, GEORGIA -- Several times now I have had to return a meat product to Kroger because when I arrived home and opened it, it was BAD! The smell was awful! In one case, the butcher was nice enough to replace the Salmon that I had bought with Fresh Salmon (a LOT of it) directly from their ice display in front (originally, she asked for me to take the pre-packaged meat on sale). Well, the Salmon in the display was bad too! I had to go to another store at the last minute for meat for a dinner party!
And to top that off, my husband and I have noticed that Kroger has started to add water (they call it a "Flavoring Solution") to their meat! The packaging says that it accounts for 12 to 15% of the product weight! I'm not paying for water and salt! It also gives the meat a rubbery consistency!
We will NOT buy meat from Kroger any more, no matter how cheap it is. They should be ashamed for taking advantage of their customers in this way!
