A now-deleted Facebook post that went viral over the weekend has left many questioning how Woolworths stores its meat products.
In the post, Steven Hili argues that he had been told by a butcher working at Woolworths that meat wrapped with black wrapping was made in store, and was only left on the shelf for two days. The white packaging, he alleges, is used on meat that is five days old - arriving from Sydney already wrapped and "pumped with gas with more preservatives".
When pushed further on whether the claims made by Mr. Hili were true, a Woolworths spokesperson said he "hadn't been provided with further details... apart from the information we have put on record."
BuzzFeed News has reached out to Steven Hili for comment.
