Crazy MCW case

Post by sourwes » Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:24 pm

I recently received a case of MCWs that was the craziest I've ever seen. Had the case not been sealed, I would not have believed it. The case contained only 4 menus, and several had labels pasted over the original. Example below. Case was a Wornick dated BB 01-2017. Anyone else experience anything like this?

I had tons of cases that were like that but it had every menu, and then the #6 was pasted over to make 2 #7 or #2.

Only 4 menus is pretty wild though. Which ones did it have?

4 western style Scrambled eggs, 3 spaghetti, 3 beef stew, 2 chicken n rice. The beef stew all had overprinted labels. Of course I hate dehydrated eggs lol. I had to order another case just to get what I wanted. Will be selling the eggs soon :D

I wonder if these cases are contract rejects? I have a feeling cases like these wouldn't fly by for long....

Good point; I'm gonna try to do some further research. I have another case inbound from same seller; will check its contents and follow up with seller.
