Con­sumers should be able to get their money back

Bray People - - Pork Crisis - Deborah COLE­MAN

CON­SUMERS across Co. Wick­low should en­counter few prob­lems in get­ting their money back if they have pur­chased pork meat prod­ucts which are pos­si­bly con­tam­i­nated.

Fol­low­ing the news of the meat scare which stems from ex­tremely high level of chem­i­cals found in cer­tain pig feed re­tail­ers have been forced to come up with a con­tin­gency plan on how to re­fund con­cerned cus­tomers.

Fol­low­ing or­ders from the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture and Food to have all sus­pect prod­ucts re­moved from shop floors and de­stroyed var­i­ous com­pa­nies have agreed to re­fund their cus­tomers where pos­si­ble.

A spokesper­son for Tesco Ire­land which has branches in Ark­low, Wick­low Town and Bray said that while no re­ceipt is nec­es­sary for Tesco own-brands, valid proof of pur­chase must be pro­duced for other Ir­ish branded meat prod­ucts.

This also ap­plies to any own brand prod­ucts which may have been frozen by the con­sumer af­ter pur­chase.

A sim­i­lar pol­icy has been set out within Dunnes Stores na­tion­wide. If cus­tomers have fur­ther queries dur­ing the re­fund process they will be re­ferred to the store man­ager.

Mus­graves, par­ent com­pany of Su­per­valu, also out­lined that no re­ceipt is needed for Su­per­valu prod­ucts but will be re­quested for other brands.
