Got a result! Sainsburys have agreed that a refund was in order and have offered a voucher to the price of TWO chickens :wink:

Thankfully they haven't asked for the decomposing remains of the original to be returned

Reminds me of a train where all the toilets were faulty. The guard issued vouchers to all passengers. Vouchers for free drinks :?

Had some of that cheap pasty bread at home, it went mouldy before the date on the clip. The plastic bag is very thin, maybe there was a hole in it

Yes had a number of sealed uncooked bread go off.
The supplier suggested that it only need a pin prick hole in it to do that before expiry date which makes sense, bad handling probably.
I don't worry much about expiry dates, if it looks ok and SMELLS ok they you will be ok.
Meat smells funny when it going off for sure.
