Meijer Uses Receipts To Warn Customers They Bought Products Recalled For Botulism

Instead of just printing coupons on the receipt, Meijer put this warning, using purchase history tracked to her credit card, that reader Sarah may have purchased products recalled for botulism.

She writes, “Thanks to consumerist, I had already disposed of them… I was just glad that [Meijer] did that – it seemed above and beyond just tacking up the notice on the wall.”

Props to Meijer. It’s good business sense to help keep your customers from dying!
