Door-to-door meat salesmen have been ringing doorbells -- and raising eyebrows -- in the Twin Cities.

Don't buy meat from the back of a truck at all, no matter if it is refrigerated or has "USDA Choice" on the box. Buying things from unsolicited sales calls like this are never a good idea. You choose the seller--don't let them choose you.

Interesting - I had the experience of someone trying to sell his "extra" inventory last summer. I passed on it, but didn't know it's a shady thing. I'll take the license if it happens again.

The guy in our neighborhood said his "regular" customers didn't want their whole order. Yeah, right. I told him no.

I wish I had read this article a year ago! I bought meat today (why I don't know-I never buy door to door) The salesman gave me his name and phone# but when I looked at it later it was blank! He obviously switched it on me. I was on the phone for 2 hours to the Burnsville office and the corporate office in Iowa. They evidently had a script as both people said (yelled ) the exact same words to me. The only way I can get a refund is to let them come and get the meat and then they will give a receipt. I am then suppossed to wait 10 days to get a check. I offered to bring the meat to the Burnsville office and have them cut me a check but that is "against corporate policy". .Do it their way or no refund
