SUPERMARKET GAMES 2
of our chicken or weigh the meat and charge us according to that weight reading, before injecting the water. Also, the additional handling and equipment used to inject water into the meat products... is another opportunity for adding bacteria to the meat. How about the packaging games?! Whatever happened to 64 ounce (half gallon) containers for orange juice, grapefruit juice and ice cream. Now many juice containers, especially the plastic ones... are at 59 (or so) ounces, pint-like containers are no longer 16 ounces, but 14 and 15 ounces. Half Gallon-like ice cream containers are now 1 1/2 quarts instead of 2 quarts.

Now the 8 packs are selling those very same price levels. L
