Chops, minced beef, steaks, you name it, it was security tagged. Presumably this is to foil shoplifters, which begs the question – how out-of-hand was this problem to go to the extra trouble of a new IT system?
Did all that many people really steal freezing cold raw meat? Did they hide them down their trousers or up their jumpers? I shiver at the very thought! Imagine the irony of being caught stealing some tagged mince, and being tagged as a criminal!
Things are getting worse when this sort of thing has to happen. Whatever’s next – a pin number and password to get a pie?
