Crooked at Hows Market

trojans | Dec 22, 2008 01:59 PM

I was in the area of Hows market on Lankershem and needed some stuff for dinner. I went to the butcher and asked for a small prime rib roast he handed me a pre-packaged one in the display and I walked away. I was checking the meat out and saw a sell by date of two days ago. So I went back to the butcher to let him know. He proceeded to tell me that there is something wrong with the machine and it doesn't give correct dates and something or other and that it was packaged today. Ok. So I then went to the self serve meat dept. and found the exact same prime rib roasts with sell by dates 5 days from now. I then checked reviews from my phone and saw other people complaining about the very same thing. What gives? This is not a behavior one would look for in their butcher. There has to be some trust shared. It's a beautiful market but it's on my no go list now.
