Buying meat off a truck? Check the seller's license
That's what Steve Jewell called the steaks and chops he was offered recently by a salesman going door-to-door in his Minneapolis neighborhood. The frozen, vacuum-packed meat came in an unlabeled box. The salesman said he was at the end of his shift, so he was offering the meat at cost.
Jewell passed on the deal. "I don't want a 'Don't ask, don't tell' policy when I'm buying meat," he said. "I don't care how cheap it is."
