So apparently my grocery store has access to my phone number, due to my using their “rewards” card, and can call me to tell me that a product that I purchased has been “recalled for not meeting quality standards.”
So, they called me, literally as I was putting my TWO beautiful, homemade-crust, pumpkin pies in the oven, to tell me that.
That’ll teach me to buy the cheapest can on the shelf… (which, I will add, I happened to note *after* receiving this phone call, was not made in the same country in which I reside. Interesting. Not saying that’s why there’s a recall, but I can’t help but wonder if there’s a correlation. And, for the record, I will from now on be more stringent about where food that I buy was processed/made.)
I almost had a breakdown…It was 2 pm and Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and I have to work tonight! Not to mention being furious about the other wasted ingredients! Anyhow, I went to the store, and explained my situation, and luckily she told me to just grab the ingredients off the shelf that I needed, in addition to refuding the canned pumpkin! Sweet! So, it won’t quite look homemade, as I bought a frozen crust to save time, but I am feeling a lot better now!
