TikToker expresses skepticism about ‘Puffy’ chicken packaging from Target

In the video, Alyson Withay (@alyson_withay) informs her followers that she received a mobile “driver order” from Target in Sarasota, Florida, and she claims one of the items. The items she received were not safe to consume. She said she used to work at the store to fulfill her orders, and pointed out that the chicken breast she received had a “$1 off” sticker. She said this meant it would expire soon, but she didn’t get the discount because it was an online order.

“Look how inflated it is,” she said as she looked at the packaging, which was clearly filled with air. “The blistering packaging you see here is the result of gas escaping from bacterial growth. This means that the chicken has been left out of temperature for a long time and then they put it on the sales floor for sale. Use for humans. ”

She warned that if someone ate chicken, they would get “severely sick”.

The video has since garnered more than 449,000 views. Withay’s video is one of several TikToks recently warning viewers not to eat consumers in “puffy” packaging.

However, Withay said in a next video that she got bad chicken from her Target position two or three times. She also said she knows in-store food handling is a problem because she’s familiar with the food safety guidelines used at Target from her time there.

She posted another update The video lets her followers know that she has received a refund for the item. She then appealed to those who criticized the video, saying that people “miss the point of the video, which is about the proper safe handling of food and the fact that everyone in the store needs retraining. “.
