15.) Why do products get moved around?

From time to time, we do make changes in our stores to accommodate new products and dedicate more room to growing categories of products. Some of the changes also are in response to requests or suggestions that we have received from customers. These types of changes often cause a domino affect resulting in many items being relocated. Whenever we make changes, we will post signs letting customers know the new location of the product. We also update the overhead directories and paper directories, which are available at the customer service desk.

20.) Why is ground beef sometimes brown on the inside?

The red color that most people associate with fresh meat is simply meat that has been exposed to and combined with oxygen. Pigments found in animal muscle combine with oxygen to give this red color. It is normal to find this red color on the outer portion of ground beef, since this is the part of the meat that is in contact with the oxygen in the air. In addition, it is normal to find that the inner portions are darker in color (brownish or purplish) due to lack of contact with air.

21.) Is meat left on the counter overnight still safe to eat?

Obey the 2-hour rule. Don't leave perishable foods out of the refrigerator for more than two hours. Keep hot foods (140 degrees or above) and cold foods cold (40 degrees or below).

23.) How long does it take for my family to receive my orders?

This will really depend on how quick you are. What we can promise is that it is instantaneous. As soon as you are done shopping and you check out  the items out and paid for them, you should be able to send your folks an SMS or an email or just make a quick phone call. When they receive the order number they can go to their local supermarket and pick the items. Remember, they will have to have the required identification papers and the right answers to the questions you pose when you finished shopping before they can be allowed to collect the merchandize.

24.) What Paper work will I need to collect Items from a local super market?

A recognized national ID or a passport and a secret word or answer to a question. The ID MUST have a picture of the person collecting the items and the name on the ID or password must match the person's name for which the order is meant to go to. Now, if the above information are not matching and the recipient is not having the right answer to the questions asked by the person who shopped, then that will automatically warrant a denial of the collection of the items.

26.) What causes the inside of tin cans to discolor?

The discoloration is called detinning. Detinning is an interaction between an acidic product such as tomatoes, juices, pickles and sauerkraut, the tin-plate and a small amount of oxygen that is left remaining in the can after it is sealed. This reaction will continue until the oxygen is depleted. The appearance is unpleasant, but it is not harmful in any way.

27.) What is the shiny glass-like substance sometimes seen in canned fish?

Struvites in canned tuna are often mistaken as glass. Struvite is a phenomenon that occurs during the processing of the fish. It is made up of natural mineral components that precipitates out of fish during the canning process. This is not a harmful situation since the struvite, if swallowed, would dissolve in the stomach. Manufacturers work hard to prevent the formation of struvite.
