Ah frozen, fair enough



Can you freeze those? :whistling:

Do you need "5 good size" chicken fillets? Thats two people happy and one lopsided.

At that price it makes me wonder what conditions these chickens were treated to.

Who gives a damn? They're dead now. These things are bred for eating, not crying over.

No-one's asking you to buy them. That's the beauty of options. Let those of us who don't give a damn about livestock (live stock. Stock that's alive. They're stock, not little people) buy what we want. You enjoy the organic corn-fed free-range velvet cushioned chickens with posters on their walls just like in Chicken Run.

That said I wouldn't buy meat from Sainsburys because they never chill their stuff properly. The meat sits out on trolleys all night. I've lost count of the number of times I've been ill from their chilled meats.

I'd rather pay a few quid extra to the butcher and get something which won't leave me ******** through the eye of a needle.

What convinced you that it was the meat from the store that made you ill and how do you know it 'sits out on trolleys all night'?

If you've 'lost count the number of times' you've been ill through consumption of meat from the store, why did you go back?

Perhaps you've got issues in the kitchen and are cross contaminating your food? 70% of food poisoning originates in the home.

My wife works there - we get a discount. I used to work nights so would shop at night as well. In several branches they switch their chillers off at night to conserve power.

Every now and then we'll buy something just to see. But more often than not it ends up either not being cooked because of the stench coming off it (watch their pork especially) or we end up ill later. Given that it only happens when we buy Sainsburys or Tesco stuff I'd say our research stands up.

Is that satisfactory for you?

Not really no.

I simply don't believe that they would turn off their chillers to conserve energy!

Unless you can provide lab' evidence to support your allegations, you're onto plumbs.

In my job I get a host of people calling up who seem convinced that what they ate from X place gave them food poisoning. It's usually hilariously only a few hours post consumption too.

The bottom line is this, if you suspect you're getting food poisoning, go to your GP and submit a sample - keep a sample of the meat in your freezer and submit it to your environmental health department to get it examined at the lab.

I never thought a thread on chicken fillets would fast turn into a Jerry Springer debate, we usually get big packs of chicken fillets from Makro, but the offers have been pants recently, may check this out, thanks for the heads up OP...heat added.

Oh just continued reading, I think it would be a good idea to put they are frozen ones in your original post. Don't buy those as they usually add water and god knows what else to them lol. Prefer to buy fresh and freeze ourselves Too late voted hot now.

Its not just the conditions that these animals are bred in but also the quality of the resultant meat.

HALF of their flesh is just FAT!!

Enjoy that if you like but better VFM is gotten from properly bred animals.

I'd happily pay twice as much for twice the protein/meat value. Wouldn't you?

And a by product of doing so is that there will be less animals suffering.

Win Win in my view, and at no cost to you.

And yet this article contradicts that http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article658245.ece

I do personally prefer to buy free range eggs, usually get them from local farms whereby they are tastier and cheaper than in the supermarkets. However find its too expensive buying organic chicken...I am sure you should be right in your assumptions, good stuff in the feed, less stress on the chickens "life" should result in a tastier chicken.
#15
For every free range chicken you eat, Im going to eat TWO mass produced chickens!
#16
The best way to get cheap meat is cash and carry, if you know a mate with a member number or your local friendly landlord, you can gain entery, my local cash and carry do 5kg of chicken breast for 17.99!!!!! I think there are 26ish large breasts, speaking of which are you a leg or breast man, s******..... and its not even crimbo!

I can not believe it i just typed in s****** and it blocked it????????

I forget which percentage of statistics are made up to prove a point.. :whistling:
#23
While I know for certain the freezers aren't switched off at our sainsburies, quite often the frozen stuff does get left out on trolleys all morning, waiting to be stored, since there can be occasionally only one person doing the frozen stuff some days. I wouldn't have thought it'd make people ill, but it's definitely left out a lot longer than the guidelines (which is something like an hour, iirc) so who knows :oops:

I think we all know what's wrong with typing 'sni[color="black"]gger[/color]' - the same thing that's wrong with typing 'Scu[color="black"]nt[/color]horpe'.

By which, of course, I mean a badly configured (and as you can see, easily circumvented - can't stop me saying 's******' or 'S****horpe' if I want to) anti-swearing filter.

Not quite the worst one I've seen - I was more amused by the video game that wouldn't let you talk about 'shoes', and the American Football board that censored words common to the sport such as 'pass', 'grass' and 'class', as well as NFL legends such as 'Dick Vermeil'.

That old famous Vic Reeves quote:thumbsup:

It is true however. Part of my job is to be informed in this respect, we get these kind of statistics from the government agency the FSA. If I were to watch anyone prepare food in their own kitchen, I can almost guarantee I notice a major no-no when it comes to cross contamination.

Ahh - sounds like someone's been watching some Hugh Smugly-Twittingstall.

Leaving aside his previous lies - that thing they did recently about the percentage of fat was indeed interesting. But he was concentrating on brown meat only in those statistics. These are chicken breasts.

Also the further quoted Times article says a lot as well.

Just don't believe everything you read because a certified "Nutritionist" said it.

When my son worked in morrisons he said they use to leave their cooked chicken on the racks outside next to the bins to cool donw & once someone dropped one so just picked it up & put it back with the others...nothing would surprise me in any of these places, but if we didnt shop there where would we shop???

I can't understand all these people with stories of such heinous crimes who don't report those implicated to the relevant authorities.
#29
you get what you pay for at the end of the day , if you are going to be eating it just for taste and not for nutritional value then I guess it's an ok deal , i'll eat 4 breasts a day but I'd rather pay a little extra and get something that contains more protein and less water/fat.

I used to work in Kitchens for many years. (Now IT thankfully) you would not believe the Horrors I have seen. Frozen Chicken Jointed and left to Thaw in Ceramic Sinks (These sinks are for hand wash only remember)

My friend workks in Sainsburys and he confirms at Night The Chillers are powered down to conserve power.

But importantly, are they covered with an insulating material? There is nothing wrong with powering down chillers since during the day they are open as people have to stuff their trolleys full of grub and need to get it. This is much like running your fridge with the door open. They need a lot of power since the cold escapes. Come night-time when the shop is closed, they cover the chillers to keep the cold in the chiller so requiring less energy. Much like closing the fridge door.

They possibly are, and that is a good point. As I stated before working in catering I have seen a lot of horrific food incidents so nothing really surprises me.

Regarding Chicken, I prefer Free range chicken as I believe the bird has a better quality of Life. But in this day and age we need to mass produce food to feed the planet. People on a low income can benefit greatly from this. Its all down to personal choice. In an ideal world we would all be doing our shopping in local shops, but this is the age of the Supermarket

You have a warped idea of the authorities. They must give 24hrs notice before any visit.

Contrary to urban legend they're not allowed to walk into a place.

Anything else is someone's word against someone else's.

You should see the panic in these places when a visit is due.

Won't be cheaper - but I still agree with supporting the local butcher.

Local shops are vanishing.

If you are eatting this for taste then its a shocking deal this stuff tastes of nothing.
