Retweeted by Michael Batz@bugcounter @benjaminchapman Punk in 2014 is totally corporate. But I'd probably go with Leaky Chicken Parts.@benjaminchapman @bugcounter Man, I was good. So fast. Expert bagger. Superfresh knew they had someone special.@benjaminchapman @bugcounter I think everywhere. When I cashiered at a grocery store (~91-94) it was just like wet gross saran wrap.@benjaminchapman @bugcounter Also, meat packaging has improved. They leak a LOT less than they used to. Bet risks have dropped.@benjaminchapman @bugcounter Like all of this stuff, most of the time it's like don't worry and then sometimes you're like WOAH WOAH STOP@bugcounter @benjaminchapman Fully agree, but I HAVE seen people throw (unbagged) produce onto a belt with visible chicken juice.
