From Ask Heidi reader Linda:
Hard question to explain. this is the 2nd time this
has happened. I have bought the Jack Daniels Pulled Chicken that is delicious. It’s seasoned and cooked white meat in 3 pouches packaged in a plastic container. Been buying it in the 2 pk, but, recently Costco has started selling it in the 3 pack. My package is well within the use by date, but, what happens is that the plastic pouches expand till they get really,really big and tight, and look like they want to explode, The pressure is there, as it actually pushes up the heavy paper lid that covers it. Before this product was sold in a 2 pack, and it never had this problem.
So I don’t want to eat anything that I know for sure, shouldn’t look like
this. Can you tell me what this is about and more importantly IS IT UNSAFE
US Food Safety’s answer: Look at the packaging and see who the manufacturer is. If you can get me their name, I will do some checking.
