Fred Meyer Complaint - False advertising - Bar S Hotdogs
ALBANY, OREGON -- I went to Fred Meyer in Albany, OR because I had a coupon for Bar S Hotdogs for 88 cents (4/23/2010). I went to the checkout to buy them and was told they were $3.00. The reason given was that I had a package of "beef" hotdogs and the ones on sale were "meat". I pointed out that "beef" is a form of meat. The clerk then said that I could only get "meat" hotdogs for the sale price because the "meat" hotdogs included "by-products". This coupon was clearly false advertising. Since when is beef not a form of meat???
