‘A heart smart pork fillet advertised as 460g but actually weighing almost half that! This cut is already expensive enough!
‘Bought from Woolworths Morisset! 😡😡’
Shoppers were quick to share in Brooke’s anger, with many suggesting she take the pork back to the store in question.
Added Brooke: ‘I didn't take it back because I don't have the energy today 🙄 Might have to start taking my scales with me though!’
When New Idea Food contacted Woolworths about the issue, they assured us that their products are audited regularly and checked for their compliance to net weight requirements. Woolworths commercial scales are also constantly re-calibrated and they believe they're often more reliable than domestic kitchen scales
Said the spokesperson: ‘We want our customers to shop with the confidence they're getting what they're paying for. We have a range of robust checks and balances in place to help ensure our products comply with trade measurement requirements.’
