Has this ever happened to you?

Unbelievable!!! last night I went to the food market to buy frozen mixed veggies and fruits, went home.Then I opened up the mixed veggies & this uphaling odor of some type of what I thought was a chemical fumes seeped out..I nearly freaked out...thats how strong it was..this has NEVER happened to me before. I darted for the front door & just thru the bag outside in fear that Elvis might inhale this toxic odor.

Well, then of course it was running around opening all windows ect... truthfully, it all happend so fast all the veggies were scattered all over my terrace so I didnt take them back as I probably should have, I just sprinted for the complex garbage after securing them in tight plastic bag. I didnt want any animals getting poisened by them.

WTH was that???

Wow. I don't really buy frozen veggies, only fresh and canned, but I once bought a frozen apple pie, and inside it was actually a cherry pie, LOL.

My favorite pie is pumpkin...yum!!!
And what in the world! That is so odd....I'd probably have done the same thing and
ran outside to pitch it! I would definitely go speak to the manager. That's so strange,
I wonder what it could be...

Oh wow. I would talk to the grocer and I would call the manufacturer of the veggies - the grocer just sells the pre-packaged goods, so they would probably give you your money back but the manufacturer would need to know too, in case there's something wrong with that batch
