I had a pack of sausages that were in date that ballooned up in the fridge yesterday with noticable signs of mould growing in side.

I took them back to the supermarket and had a refund (£2) but I explained to them I could easily have eaten them a few days ago and been very ill. I really wanted some follow up to find out how this happened - would you be satisfied with just a refund or would you even have bothered to take them back.

If I had a name like yours I would certainly have the squits

Maybe you should have taken them to Trading Standards.  

If I could be bothered, I'd have taken them back and accepted the refund. If I couldnt be bothered I'd just have binned them.

I know it doesn't answer your question but I would only ever buy sausages from a butcher 

Reminds me of the time when my next-door neighbour came in with an open pack of sausages and said to me, "Do these smell off to you?". As he leaned over my dog to stick the pack under my nose, she grabbed the string of sausages and ran behind the settee. "If she eats all of them, then they're not off", i said.

She ate them all๐Ÿ˜Š

I have another pack in the fridge with a use by date if the 20/5 that I can't eat now!

I realise that this has triggered something I saw years ago at robirch(remember them) the way they treated the processed meat - never ate another robirch product haha.

I decided to write to the supermarket and ask for an explanation - so in answer to my own question - I wasnt satisfied.

thanks for your answers

how's the dog doing, Ken?

Squitty, no, don't bother, you've got your money back; it's not worth your time.

I'd have taken the second pack back as well, said I would be too worried that those would go off, go mouldy too. I'd have settled for (rather than 'been happy') with a refund - I wouldn't have got into any 'could have...' scenarios.

But they weren't mouldy a few days ago so there would have been no probs eating them. I don't understand how a supermarket can investigate what happened to them anyway? Perhaps you could explain what you think they could have done. How could they prove you didn't just leave them out or your fridge is dodgy? 

In any case to answer your q I would not have even bothered to take them back unless I was hard up for 2 pound
