Devoted Customer Upset Jimmy Dean Downsized Sausage 16oz To 12oz But Charges Same Price
By Ben PopkenNovember 13, 2007
Enraged by Jimmy Dean reducing the size of their sausage from 16 oz to 12 oz but still charging the same price, Randy Taylor left a voicemail complaint on Jimmy Dean corporate line. Randy has a southern accent and is quite upset with the Jimmy Dean sausage company. He threatens to never buy, and never eat, Jimmy Dean sausage again until they go back to making sausage like they used to. Click above to hear it (warning: curse words). How good an idea is this all-too common price-chiseling if it turns 30-year fans into boycotters?
