I was at the Canadian Superstore this morning and I noticed in the meat department they now are stocking President’s Choice Free From products.
The Beef products state “raised without the use of antibiotics and hormones” but the pork and chicken products only state “raised without the use of antibiotics”. I ask Rick from the meat department in Canadian Superstore but he was not sure whether hormones are used in the Pork and Chicken.
The dates on the Beef products were 9 days out (May 5th) which is pretty far out and the meat was already brown. Rick was not sure about that issue either. I called the President’s Choice customer support line at 1-888-495-5111 and talked to Romain Calvy who is a senior Loblaw Companies Limited customer relations rep.
Romain was very helpful and told me the Beef and Pork is hormone free. He sent me an email with a case number and told me it would get back to me with in a week on why the Beef products are brown and the expire date was 9 days out.
The Pork and Chicken is raised in Canada while the Beef is labeled as raised in USA and the prices are pretty reasonable.
Here are some of the Free From products listed on the President’s Choice website.
