How much time do we spend in shopping??? Do we observe clearly when we buy things at a foodstore or a supermarket???? I have seen incident happen like a person found a safety pin in a bottle of tomato sauce. A rat was discovered in the bottle of grekins in brine water. A lady found a small anke in the brocolli. Has something like this happened to you???? Please share if you havee seen or heard something like this.

I wonder..what country are you in? I know sometimes little things fall into the food. Were all the occurances in one location? I am pretty observant.

I am observant whenever I am buying or shopping. I check the package, I check the label, expiry date and everything, so that I will get a 99% of quality of product. As a consumer it is our duty to check on the products before buying it, because it is so hassle if we only find that out when we got home, we have no choice but to report the product and return it. So we will consume another gas, another effort going to that store to return it. There are so many instances that I check the products before going to the counter to pay it, being a chemist graduate that has taught me to do it.

I do not take much time in shopping, for that reason I go for shopping alone. I have a friend which takes too long to decide to buy one item, he will buy something finally and next day will go to retutn the same. I do not go for shopping with that friend. He takes to much time.

when i shop at malls or stores, i always able to notice the arrangements and the kind of products they sell. for example, in one store where i shopped, almost of their goods are china made. in the other store, i found it so messy. i usually compare malls. the landscape and size of area and building struck me most.

I'm a little observant when it comes to food. I always check for packaging and date of expiration. But issues like foreign objects found inside canned food products are impossible to detect when you're actually buying that food. It boils down to food preparation. We should be pretty observant when preparing food for our family.
