Lucullus: Ripping off unsuspected customers using FALSE labeling!! - Buyers Beware!

Charles Yu | Sep 27, 201803:59 PM     19

Bought this box of frozen prepared food from Lucullus at Hwy#7 & Chalmers. Supposed to be ' Pork spare ribs with black bean '. Found their charging $7.99 for such a SMALL box already over-priced but decided to give it a try due to Lucullus reputation of offering tasty products.

Came home to find ' HALF A BOX ' was layered with 'El-Cheapo' chopped up pumpkin bits with thick skin on! Are you kidding me?! Where on the label and ingredient list did they mention ' pumpkins'?....and in such huge quantity!

HUGE RIP OFF INDEED!! IMO, total cost of ingredients under a couple of dollar?!

Oops! Things just gotten worse!! Picked up a few pieces thinking they were pork? Ended up ' fried tofu ' pieces instead! Man! quantity of meat is dwindling really fast!!

Such unethical business practice!
