Bad Duck!

Recently, HC bought some bad duck! And I mean bad bad bad duck.

Look at this!

The one on the left looks "normal", while the one on the right is obviously bad!
HC bought three packets of duck breast from this mega supermarket (so they're supposed to have fresh meat, right?). Immediately upon reaching home, she separated them into 6 packets and freeze them. The next day, she decided to take out 2 packs to thaw for us, and was horrified to saw that half of them had turned to a dull-greenish/brown color. So she threw away those bad-looking ones but fed us a little of those that look "normal".
Of course, I - the one with iron stomach had no problem, but Jack had minor diarrhoea.
In the end, HC threw away the whole lot as she doesn't want us to be sick or rather, to clean up wet poo poo. She also wrote to the supermarket to complain about the bad meat. In the end, the supermarket "accept full responsibility for the deficiences in quality assurance check on supplier's product and have taken steps to ensure that supplier undertakes the required quality assurance check training....".
They offered a refund but HC didn't have any receipts nor even know how much she paid.
(HC : ya... I am very bad with remembering the price of things I buy, perhaps sub-consciously trying not to know how much I spent on these two dogs!)
HC hopes that the supermarket will indeed improve on their quality - cos that's the only place she knows that has boneless duck breasts.

Those meat really looks yuckie. Why didn't HC buy the whole fresh duck and divide them up for you guys? I know that Jaffe and Kaylie's mama is doing that for them.

mega supermarket... is it the C- one or the G- one?? :P

Snowball - we eat raw meat only (no bones), HC used to get a whole duck but hates seeing the head and removing the bones. So she thought getting the boneless duck breast is a godsend.
Ben_benjamin - we sooo wanted to eat it, bad or not :)
yl - the C one. :) But HC has bought from it before and has no problem. This is probably one-off issue.

Oh the bad duck looks scary. Good thing your HC threw away before you or Jack get sick. Hope the supermart improve on their standard of quality
