Been buying Purdue for 35 years and only in the past 8 or 10 years have they gotten huge and tougher and tougher. It is like they are processing dead rigamortis-set-in-already chickens.
I read about the "woody" chicken breasts and how they don't know why it is happening. Then in the other breath they say it's harmless. How could they know it's harmless if they don't know what causes it? I'm so sick of this and am now on the brink of boycotting chicken altogether.
In one large pack of chicken there were 3 huge breasts and one smaller that were all unusable.
I filet my own breasts so I can feel it immediately. Also color is off on a lot of them. I might as well by supermarket brand breasts.
See photo of size relation in one package. Chickens used to be no more than 3 pounds, now one half of a breast is almost 2.
