Jewel-Osco / red pepper purchased

Hazel Crest, IL, United States Review updated:

I purchased a red pepper (that looked great on the outside), and there was something horrible that had grown inside of it. It looked like mold and/or something that had died inside of the red pepper. I'm concerned about the quality of vegetables being offered. I have been a customer of Jewel-Osco for over 40 years, and find this very disconcerting. I took a picture of this red pepper.

    Gee, you expect the store to have magical powers to see the inside of a red pepper? High expectations.

    I shop at The Gourmet Outlet and have paid $5.99 per lb for red peppers and found mold or rot inside of veggies.

    It happens. Even if they inspect every veggie or fruit, they can’t view inside the item.

    Bring it back with your receipt. Get over it.
