Icon104 Secrets best kept secret

Comment: This is not a rumor but rather is true. I am an ex manager of
arbys. In 2003 we were selling a pot roast sandwich that was so bad we
just couldn't sell all that we had bought as a company no matter what we
did. When finally the powers at be decided to end the promotion and stop
selling it they were faced with the challenge of what to do with the
remaining product. They contacted many food shelters but were turned down
by all of them. As a last resort dog food companies were contacted and can
you belive that even they turned down the product because it didn't meet
up to thier standards. In the end it was all thrown away.

Okay, either Margaret Truman has had the greatest facelift ever or Bess Truman secretly gave birth in her 50s or Harry Truman was living a double life as an Italian man in Maryland while Vice President and President.
The mind boggles.

Comment: I was just reading your article on the Pepsi Tampering case in
1992. You claim it was false. I find that funny because I spent 4 yrs in
federal prison for it. If you are interested in the truth, let me know.
Pepsi paid me $450k to keep it quiet. It isn't a false claim.

I could see this as really happening, not because Arby's is so icky and gross, but because FDA and Health Department regulations would require any food company, shelter, restaurant, etc. to be able to provide and account for all of the storage of the food in its history, correct storage, temperature, etc. and it is unlikely that this strict recordkeeping could have been provided.
