I would ring the store, tell them that unless THEY immediately replace it that you are going to contact the Food Standards Agency. This should not be happening under ANY circumstances.

Thanks for reply.

First guy at store said that they could pick up stuff but could not do another shop. This was only when I pressed him. He tried to tell me he did not know if they had a driver in area. I told him ..of course you do he has just delivered to us.

My hubby told them it was their cock up and they should sort it

We spoke to someone higher up who organised original guy to come back and take contaminated bags away.

When he came back to pick bags up he had gloves on this time. Strangely he steadied himself on our porch too!

Higher up manager told me they had re picked my food and it would be delivered after 8 pm.

So we are waiting hope it comes as we have no way now of getting any tonight.

Luckily we had enough food in free freezer for tea .

Its quite shocking what that guy did he touched both my bins with both his hands!

I would have hated this pre corona but just can't tolerate it now!

Lovely guy just delivered food...

Not all there as it was a late shop. But enough for tea and loads of milk and juice.

Just none of my tea bags, fruit, kitchen roll or soap.

Manager had told me they wouldn't refund what was missing but hubby will try and sort that as we will have to buy missing items.

But we are glad we now have food!
They won't refund what was missing??? Report this clown to the company HQ!
Agree

Hubby just checked list.

About a third of shop missing.

Hubby will take it to the top if he has to.

Get used to that don't we!

Have you tried Morrisson's online shopping or one of their boxes, which are excellent value?
I became fed up of constantly trying to get a delivery from Tesco, still can't. Then I tried a few times on Morrissons' site, success at last, first a food box, which I highly recommnd Now I have been ableto do a secobd and third shop..

Regarding the chicken, I know a pound of meat is quite a bit for a couple with small appetites. Could you freeze some, have some hot, some in sandwiches, make some soup or add some to some canned vegetable soup?
we wont use anything that is past its use by date , when contacting kings church they advised that the volunteer would not go back to the store for a replancement or refund , so i am thinking all though you have made a list up the volunteer would ring you and you pass the list to them over the phone volunteer goes to get shopping and comes back with what you did not want so basically you have to put up with what the volunteer gets you all though its wrong so what is the point of making a shopping list for volunteer and yes i know they are doing a service but bringing back stuff you cannot use in one day is not right would anyone buy food that has got a date to use buy on the day of buying it , cannot ring supermarket as they would say bring it back for exchange all though we have the receipts its not our bank card on the receipt
You can ring the supermarket because they shouldn't be selling food that is out of date. Can you email a photo.
Is it the "sell by" or "use by" date you are looking at?

The best way to tell if something is "off" is to smell it.
If it smells OK it will be fine, especially if cooked thoroughly in a casserole.

Tesco

Tesco is trying to prioritise home delivery slots for vulnerable customers, reserving “hundreds of thousands of home delivery slots a week” according to a statement from the supermarket chain.

They are identifying customers using the list provided by the Government.

To try and get access to a priority slot, you can phone 0800 917 7359.

Tesco says that they are “working closely with administrators across the UK and expect this list to be extended to cover Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in the coming weeks”.
