My flash frozen haddock at Market Basket

mcel215 | Jul 7, 2008 04:56 PM

I bought a bag of flash frozen Market Basket haddock, to keep on hand in the freezer.

I knew the quality wasn't going to be great, but thouht it would be good for a quick night's dinner. The pieces of haddock are extremely small and thin. The consistancy is not haddock like at all, more like Talapia (very fragile). I decided to read the ingredients and it says haddock. However, on closer inspection the bag says "product of China". I was shocked. Tilapia from Africa and Haddock from China.

From now on, anything frozen I buy is hopefully coming from this Country. Am I ever gonna find local frozen fish?

BTW, nothing against other Countries, I am just trying to put my money back into the USA to help raise the economy. ; - )

Any tips? Thanks.
