Ingles Complaint - Bad Hamburger

Review by skippie on 2010-01-29
MARION, VIRGINIA -- I was at your Ingles store in Marion Virginia yesterday and bought some hamburger meat and it had been repackaged it was fresh on the outside and old and black in the middle. I drive twenty five miles to shop at Ingles. We have a food country in our town but theirs is worse than Ingles. They are putting a layer of fresh ground meat over the top of the old and misleading the customer, what do I need to cut the package in two to see the old meat before I buy it.

This is the first this has happened at Ingles, and I was very disappointed.

Did you bring this to the attention of the manager?

I would contact the Department of Health. They sound like they are so in need of an inspection.

Disgusting. Anyone remember a few years back when Food Lion was caught bleaching and repackaging meat? I still can't buy meat there.

did you return it??

Yes - you need to contact the Department of Health (take a picture, be sure to show the label), call the store and talk with the manager, and return it to get a full refund.

If both of your local stores are doing this, call the media. This would make a good story. You'd think with all the concern over bad food and illness, they would know better.

Oh please this is common practice at stores all over. Take it back and get a refund. Show it the manager and if you still aren't satisfied then find another store.
MEAT DOES SPOIL. Ever see how meat looks without the CO2 injections after a few days?
Media my ASparagus!

This is a common practice at stores all over? No way. Maybe in inner-city stores.
