I bought 4lbs of ground turkey. I picked an amount that allowed me to separate it into equal 8oz pieces.
So as I’m weighing and bagging the meat, I get down to the last bit that I can make in to 2 more 8oz servings, cut off 8oz, and am left with 5 oz!
I re-measured the other meat that I already separated, and they were exactly 8oz.
3oz of meat may not sound like much, but for a large chain grocery store, they should get their measurments right.
I’ve also gotten meat from other places (as I will do from now on) and the measurments have been almost identicle to what was on the package.
I’ve got to find a local meat shop somewhere close by. I recently found a local place to get fruit and veggies, so I’m trying to boycot Walmart and other large grocery stores as much as possible. I’d rather give to my local community anyway.
Anyone else get screwed by the serving size of a grocery store’s meat?
