Re: Coop caught selling old meat as new

I would like to add I strongly believe they add water to the meat at both Coop and Migro's to add weight to the packing. It was an old trick I use to see butchers use to make more money. Wehen you cook meat here it usually forms alot of water you have to cook off. Normal beef doesn't do this.
Hmmm. I have a friend who occasionally brings me back bacon from the UK.
I have never seen so much water coming out of Swiss bacon as I have out of that stuff. Yuk!!

In fact, in my opinion, you can keep yer German/ American/ British imports, etc, because despite this Coop incident, the quality of meat here is way above anything I've ever had the misfortune to encounter in Britain.
