“So if I were thinking of buying a pre-packaged dinner, Safeway is NOT the place I’d go ever again,” says Doug.
Indeed, this is gross and you should return the items to the store and ask for a refund. Bring along the pictures you provided to us and we posted inside.
Next time, however, check the expiration dates before you enter the checkout line. They’re there to protect you. Use ’em. &mdash BEN POPKEN
- “I have a rant about Safeway Grocery store and their “pre-packaged” meals.
My wife and I bought a Turkey dinner today for $37.99 that was supposedly prepared fresh for home serving.
When we got home several of the items were EXPIRED. The Turkey itself had a big orange sticker that said it was OK for sale through January but the fine print on the Turkey said to use by December 2nd or December 21st… either way, that’s gross.
And the “fresh” dinner rolls were labels for sale by November 22nd.
Unfortunately everything else has cryptic codes for dates and we can’t tell how old the food is.
So if I were thinking of buying a pre-packaged dinner, Safeway is NOT the place I’d go ever again.
