Poisoned feed of lambs and cows

I was buying Australian lamb until it suddenly turned bad no matter how many racks of lamb I bought, they all smelled and tasted like diapers that had not been changed despite the need to do so. I then tried New Zealand lamb racks and was pleasantly surprised. Great taste, tender and less fat to throw away. However, I did not like the excessive rosemary and garlic added on the meat. Those herbs may have been a way to camouflage bad taste or maybe as preservative to prevent spoilage. At the Metro Grocery store in the meat department the sales staff said Ontario lamb was far superior - far better, in fact, the BEST they claimed. So I bought four racks of lamb. The meat was far more expensive even though there is no shipping costs such as would be incurred shipping to Ontario, Canada from New Zealand. Still, I thought, it's local lamb so it probably is better as they'd be more easily held to account and probably charge more than New Zealand or Australia because they maintan superior pastures. I CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW DISGUSTING ALL FOUR RACKS OF LAMB SMELLED AND TASTED. HORRIBLE IS NOT ADEQUATE TO DESCRIBE THE UN-NATURAL TASTE. The color was so faded I could have easily mistaken it for pork - and maybe they do substitute small pigs and then call it lamb! I've heard other friends complain they cannot get good tasting meat at Metro stores in Ontario. It could be that Quebec - where the Metro chain is owned - thinks it's funny to trick the stupid "Anglais". But if you observe Halal or Kosher, do not use the fake "lamb" from Ontario sold in Metro grocery stores. It might be pork because the taste, which is horrible, does seem to resemble pork. I'm also guessing they do not pasture the Ontario lambs but only feed them GMO corn which is why I had to throw away more than half of the meat because it was mostly lamb - and all that at a cost far higher than the superior New Zealand lamb. I just tried calling Metro's customer service line and all I got was an extended long repetitive recording saying to go to the website. Do yourself a favor and do not risk eating meat from poor animals that are clearly abused with the blighted GMO grains they are most likely fed. As for my local Ontario Metro grocery stores - they have lost my purchasing revenue and that of anyone I can advise and warn. If the animals suffer in their lifetime with confinement and poor quality grain or pelleted feeds, imagine what hormones are in the meat you're going to eat and feed your family. No wonder everyone I know says they cannot find decent meat at Metro even though the prices are higher than other grocery stores.

Metro Inc. Has The Worst Technology Online For Selling Gift Cards

Metro Inc. Has The Worst Technology Online For Selling Gift Cards! In Fact, they do Not Sell Them Online due to Fraud which is what I was told. Here is the story..... Yesterday, being Thursday, July 2, 2015 was my Mother's 84th Birthday! I tried to purchase a gift card last night and so I called their Bathurst Street/Sheppard Avenue store location out in Toronto, Ontario Canada for assistance and they told me that I could ONLY purchase the gift card using my credit card during the daytime inside their store. Well, I told the store representative that I am in Los Angeles and can Not be there to make the in-store purchase, he then told me to call their corporate office to help me. Now here we are being Friday, July 3rd, 2015 and Yes, I did contact their corporate office and somebody from their Montreal, Quebec Canadian Headquarters did return my phone call from the phone number of: 514-356-**** at 10:02 a.m., however, they told me that they are unable to accept credit cards over the phone or on their website to purchase gift cards due to Fraud. I thought that their Excuses were Redundant and Not Legitimate, nor Credible, but a Major Inconvenience when by the Year of 2015, they should have the Proper Technology to Handle Credit Card Purchases for Gift Cards and they purposely and deliberately don't, by Personal Choice! Excuses and Lies for things like this certainly do Not work with ME! I will just Take My Money elsewhere! Sure glad I don't have to do business with them on a regular basis! Thank you for Nothing! ps: No wonder the other review written was also Negative!
