    Default Don't let Lettuce Upset us...Romaine that is!

    There is something wrong with the Romaine lettuce I purchased today at Playero as it has a funny smell to it.

    I purchased a Salad Spinner to wash off all of the toxins / bugs etc. , but today after washing the lettuce with my spinner it still smelled offensive.

    Be careful is all I am saying.

    If there is something seriously wrong with it take it back and demand a refund! (Tesco or Sainsbury would give you your money back) What is a Romaine lettuce btw?

    You said it all when you mentioned where you purchased the Romaine.

    Playero have a 'scorched earth' policy when it comes to customers.
    It is because they think they operate in an area with a transient clientele.
    This is a pain if you shop there regularly.

    In this particular case though it seems they have only sold a dodgy lettuce - it happens.

    Good luck getting justice for your smelly lettuce. ;0
