Now this is brilliant. Instead of simply using their customer’s shopping history data for marketing purposes, grocery chain Meijer has decided to put their Orwellian insights to good use… They’ve started printing product recall information on the bottoms of receipts when a customer that has previously purchased a recalled product comes through the checkstand. Now that’s what I call customer service! If only someone would’ve notified us of the fact that we bought a bunch of potentially metal-laced bread… Instead, we ate it, oblivious to the potential risk. Oh well, it tasted good. And besides, our intestines weren’t sliced to ribbons, so we really don’t have anything to complain about.
