Good thing I hate peas.
Now if it was broccoli, I’d be in trouble.

Reminds of the current anti tobacco commercial that parodies a company that uses glass in their food product and has to recall their product for being “unsafe”. Not related I know, but it popped into my head. Damn those anti-smoking nazi’s.

And if California "legalizes" weed, those are going to be hard to find.

If the veggies are from China, shouldn’t it be “grass”?

More Walmart food news:

USDA suspends Tyson deli meat plant in Buffalo

Snips:

.Meat processing was temporarily suspended at Tyson's deli meats plant in Buffalo, NY, an action that by week's end put 480 people out of work.

. Most of the recalled products--various kinds of meats in "Marketside Grab and Go" sandwiches--were sold nationally in Wal-Mart stores.   A sample collected at a retail store in Georgia tested positive for Listeria and led to the recall.

Look how the title only lists Walmart, now....

I only go to Wal-Mart two or three times a year. The only products I buy are paper goods, office supplies and some brand name canned foods. It is such a hassle to go there. The parking is terrible and the crowds are worse. I much prefer Target......clean, well-lit, with good service.

I guess it’s just an odd coincidence that the last decade has seen an astronomical rise in incidences of tainted food and the ubiquitous employment of illegals in the food preparation/handling industries. No one will touch it because... that’s racist.

They only mention WalMart in the title but it includes Krogers and Great Value, also.

Great Value is the Walmart house brand, so it looks like just Walmart and Kroger - at least for now.

Having two teenage boys in the house, and occasional call to shop for groups of Boy Scouts, I'm a regular at Walmart. Fortunately we have a very nice one nearby. The produce is fresh and plentiful, and the prices are very good. Sometimes the selection is limited on a particular item, but I can live with it. With rare exception, I've also found their personnel to be very pleasant to deal with.

Over the years, I've found glass in food a couple of times, and also a thorn covered twig from a blackberry bush. Whenever I have an experience like this, I write to the manufacturer, and send them the offending item (assuming it hasn't been swallowed . . . ). In every instance I've received coupons or refunds and apologies. Stuff happens in a manufacturing setting.

LOL, I was making green chiles chowder earlier, and I knew some frozen Great Value frozen veggies were recalled, but had no desire to make a trip to the store...so, I didn’t look to see which ones were recalled...The Ignorance is Bliss/Take my Chances theory..

I am glad to see the GV frozen corn is not on recall because I already ate the chowder. It was darned good, too.

Pictsweet makes good bagged, frozen vegetables. Use’em all the time. Not peas though. Not a big fan of peas, even if they do have glass in them.
