Its most strange that the price of corned beef is high. During WW2 its was used as a cheap "top-up" to your ration vouchers when the butcher was short of other meat.

Made correctly it preserves quite well due to being salted and jellied, as well as being bulked up by cheap products.

Even after the mad-cow episode, when the price of beef dropped enormously, corned beef held its price in comparison.

Its high price is of no concern to me, the government review the two-year kill rule for cows (brought in to hide BSE - under two years they don't usually show the symptoms). In recent years the government have looked at lifting this rule, but MAFF interject and say that it might not be a good idea. They are hiding BSE and obviously still think there is a significant risk.

Hence - I don't eat beef.

Wasn't Argentinian was it, they tried to kill us all in the 60s, infected with Typhoid i think it was. Remember my dad telling me when he served in Burma during the war, they could open a tin of Bully Beef and pour it out.

Tin must have a hole in it somewhere, its cooking in the sealed can and hence fully sterilised.

Take it to the shop and accept at least 10 compensation - don't let them take it off you without the compo - they will back down if you're leaving with it, don't say what you intend to do with it, but make it clear that you are going to do something.

Mate of mine who worked for a manufacturer used to go to people's houses same day (sometimes 200 miles away) when they were an upset customer. The objective was to take the item and if necessary he would be extremely generous.

Tell them that this could be public safety problem and should you go elsewhere to seek advice, which would be more convenient to you. To go back to the shop would incur financial loss due to my time and travel, apart from the inconvenience of having a meal ruined by missing the main ingredient.

Buy your corned beef from Lidl or Asda's own brand. Cheap, cheerful, and tasty in your CB hash.
