The other day we were making some stir fry, and I really wanted some bean sprouts in it. I went to the store, and I bought this (notice the “Quality Guaranteed” notice under the Kroger logo):
I think what happened is they packaged their canned stir fry mix with a bean sprouts label.
So today I called the customer hotline 800 number on the back of the can. I pressed ’4′ or whatever it was to talk with a Kroger representative about quality problems, and I waited on hold for nearly 20 minutes. Being on hold for 20 minutes while representatives help other customers was a little alarming–how many product quality problems does Kroger have? Finally after talking with a representative who offered the only apology of: “Thats a shame,” I was offered a $2 refund, which was hardly compensation considering that I made a special trip to the store to buy the buck-fifty can in the first place.
With or without the bean sprouts, the stir fry was indeed awesome, thanks to the awesome sauce.
