Wholefoods does it again

lyn1 | Mar 20, 2007 05:02 AM

I have given Wholefoods a second chance after buying a stale moldy peach pie. I was serving the pie to dinner guests but upon closer examination, we saw molds on the pie. It was a good thing I had ice cream to serve. When I returned it the next day, the manager was rude. She just dumped the pie in the garbage can and gave me a credit coupon grudgingly. Shouldn't she have kept that pie to find out what was wrong?

I did not learn my lesson, of course. Last Friday, I bought 3 pieces of skate to cook that night. I spent a lot of time prepping and cooking that skate. When I served it and took a bite, the skate tasted of ammonia. We broke every piece to smell it, and indeed every piece smelled and tasted of ammonia.

That's it -- no more Wholefoods for me. When one pays astronomical prices for supposedly fresh food, one expects a lot. I have been telling this story to as many people as I can. Surprisingly, I have been hearing similar stories.
