Costco chicken issues. Have you been following the story with Costco and its rotisserie chickens? Over the past year, the cost went up from $4.99, which it had been for years, for a huge bird weighing in excess of four pounds, sometimes, to $6.99. About a month ago I noticed that the chickens had lost quite a bit of weight. I always select my chicken for color and size, picking many of them up and doing a full inspection. All of the chickens were small, and the price was still $6.99, making this not such a great deal anymore. I thought this might be fluke, like they happened to receive a batch of scrawny birds that week, but the problem persisted the next week. I’ll bet they got complaints, because when I went to Costco today the chickens were down to $5.99. Granted, they were still smaller – by a good pound, pound and a half – but at least they had the good sense to realize that you can’t raise the price and reduce the size so dramatically and abruptly. I called to find out if this has something to do with stopping “plumping.” Hope so. Hope to hear back.
