I don't purchase my fish, milk or eggs from Safeway for a good reason: I get sick eating Safeway's fish, milk and eggs. I purchase them at either Whole Foods or Costco.
Rosen is providing a pubic service in suing Safeway's "lapse" of utilizing their rewards programs email addresses as a means of notifying customers on recalls. Safeway's spokesperson claims Safeway isn't "required" to notify customers on recalls, well if that industry was better regulated they would be. This is another example of why we need regulation benefiting the general public from many industries. Not all regulations is bad, industries hiding behind the GOP platform of less regulation trend towards less regulation on themselves, instead of he consumer. The General Public is "regulated" to have smog checks, auto insurance, etc., yet the Oil Industry spews out pollutants without oversight. On raining and windy days, the oil refineries spew out their pollutants because it's not measurable because it's diffused by the wind or rain. Just notice this upon rainy days, and learn the next day or so another Oil Refinery releasing their poison in Martinez.
Too often you see recalled products not only at Safeway but at other companies where the product as been discounted or on sale. Moving the bad merchandise down the chain as fast as possible. Safeway should be accountable to this. Next, you'll see Safeway eliminating the rewards program at the advice of their legal team thereby lessening their role of the means of notifying their customers and the general public of tainted food stuffs. I hope Rosen wins this class action lawsuit.
Cook the eggs! They were not intended to eat raw. Even if eggs are contaminated with salmonella, cooking them will take care of that. We have never gotten sick from eggs, because we always cook them.
And for those who want to be super safe: buy egg beaters, which are already pasteurized.
I think this lawsuit should be dismissed. Safeway notified the public about the eggs, but like other companies, it cannot possibly call each individual customer to let them know!
Another gold-digger looking for a fast payout or negotiated settlement. Those evil corporations at it again---they must be punished, along with those business friendly GOP'ers, who want more private sector jobs created.
Did Safeway chickens lay those eggs you improperly prepared, or maybe they were purchased from a grower that is reponsible for any recall notices? Oy, Rosen?
She is not suing for money. She is also not asking Safeway to call customers. Did you read the article? Do you think she was feeding her toddlers raw eggs? Time to read and be informed!
"She is also not asking Safeway to call customers."
Yes she is, (she is asking for contact via email or something so same thing as a call); that is the whole point of her lawsuit, that Safeway did not contact her. Read from the article:
"""Safeway sends me emails all the time with paperless coupons," Rosen said. "I can't believe they wouldn't text or email me with news of a recall."""
" Did you read the article? Do you think she was feeding her toddlers raw eggs? "
If she did not feed anyone raw eggs, then why is she suing? Eggs which are properly cooked, even if they have salmonella in their raw form, CANNOT get you sick, so what is the big deal here? If she wants, she can throw the eggs away once she found out, or get a refund, or simply keep them and cook them thoroughly as it should be anyway. Raw eggs should be handled with the same care as any raw meat, whether it is contaminated or not. This woman is just trying to get attention because there is no issue here. If she fed the eggs to her family and properly cooked them, no one will get sick. If she was negligent and fed raw eggs to her family, that is another issue and not just the store's fault (shared responsibility would apply)
"Jennifer Rosen, 40, jointly filed a lawsuit against the Pleasanton-based grocery store chain for not doing all it could to tell her about eggs eaten by Rosen, her husband, and their two small children last year that may have had salmonella."
I wonder how many Safeway employees or executives are trolling this site and countering comments defending Safeway. Whole Foods CEO was reported to have altered blogs and comment boards while impersonating someone else. Corporate espionage isn't new. Remember, Safeway's headquarters is based in Pleasanton. It's only a matter of time, that Safeway's Rewards Program is quietly halted thereby relieving Safeway of potential liabilities and ownership of controlling and safeguarding consumers from tainted and/or recalled foods. You watch and see how honorable Safeway projects itself to be.
