Kroger Complaint - Boneless Pork Loin on sale this week, Smelled Spoiled !!
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA -- Sunday 5/1/2011, I bought a Boneless Pork Loin on-sale this week for $1.99/lb at the Charlottesville, Va. Kroger, at the corner of Emmet St. and Hydralic Rd. Package was dated good through 5/11/2011, it was one of their sealed packages. Got it open last night to cook, 5/2/2011; the smell of it was horrible when I opened it, like it was spoiled. I'm wondering if it hadn't been properly refrigerated at the store, as it had gone straight from the store to my home refrigerator after I bought it. Washing it with tap water, and marinating it with black pepper/hot sauce/red pepper/etc killed some of the stink.
I'm tempted to return to Kroger and ask for a refund; I still have the original meat wrapper, it stank so bad in my refrigerator freezer that I had to take it out, double-bag it, and put it downstairs in the deep-freezer; I then wiped the kitchen fridge with bleach as it stank so bad. Totally disgusted; I had bought plenty of pork loins there before, I think I'll stick to the partially frozen bnls/sknls chicken breasts from now on!!
