More Free Range Choices Please!!!

2 stars

Need more choice - where are the free range chickens Tesco? By giving customers so little choice, you are forcing us to buy this or 'finest' which is so over expensive and never in stock when I go in store.

1 1/2 day life..disappointed isnt the word

2 stars

I recieved this on wednesday to make a stew over weekend. Got it out friday to check date to cook on Sunday & out of date on the friday.. what use is a day & half life...

Not gutted/cleaned inside properly

2 stars

Quality really gone down hill. Often find they've not gutted/clean inside properly and not plucked fully. When cooked find cooked blood spots/patches in the breast. Really off-putting and end up leaving, so wasting food and money.

Decent chicken

4 stars

Thought I would take a chance on this chicken, even though I don't usually buy them from Tesco, and some of the reviews were not that great, but thankfully it was fine. Cooked in the time it said on the packet and everyone enjoyed it.

online shopping risks short shelf-life items

4 stars

I have bought many of these and never had a problem. However, I have to say I usually buy them in store and check the use by date. I have occasionally had other short shelf-life items sent when I shop online though, and am careful what I trust them with when I shop online now.

Cooked chicken 2 days before the use by date. Aft

1 stars

Cooked chicken 2 days before the use by date. After removing the breast of the children could see that the cavity of the chicken had not been cleaned out and the contents were describable! Sent photograph to Tesco and their customer service adviser said it resembled haggis and it must have missed quality control! Received a refund for the chicken but will not be purchasing again..
