I just returned from our neighborhood Wellcome across the road … I have no idea what criteria they have for food safety and hygiene.
In the fresh meat department they had some meat discounted but even if they would have given me 10,000NT$ on top I wouldn’t have accepted it … some liver had turned black and was probably already decomposing … a discounted pork bone smelled … well, real bad, like rotting meat and had signs of mold … some chicken legs turned a strange dark red almost black colour and there was some more meat that was really past it’s good to eat, even for animals date … I have no idea how the discounted fish was, didn’t dare to touch it …
They also have regularly fruits and vegetables discounted that would better used as fertilizer … not sold at a discount
I also noticed several times that our Wellcome had inconsistencies in their price labeling, the same product placed on different spots in the store labeled different, prices at the check out more expensive than labeled on the shelve … etc. to many to write down
So, what are the criteria and standards …?
