Additional Notes

Complaint: I was looking for a dehydrator online. I came across a listing for the following "Open country Add a Tray (2 Pack) for the Dehydrator" for the sale price of 19.99. Seeing as this item is a gift I do not know much about the products so I looked at the description which said the following. "500 Watts of drying power, Patented Coverga-flow drying action. No tray rotation required. Adjustable Thermostat. Expandable from 4 to 12 trays. Set includes: 4 drying trays, 2 fruit roll up sheets, 2 clean A screens, large Jerky Gun with 3 tips (gun holds 1 lb. ground meat) 2 Jerky spice & cure packs and an instruction/recipe booklet. Weight 8lb 6oz. Size 14"x12"x14". I packet spice works needed for 1lb of meat." This description matched the picture of the product to a "T" so I ordered it. An employee from the company contacted me to make sure that I wanted just the trays, when I told her about what the description said, she replied that she canceled my order, when I then went on to tell her that I would be following up with the BBB she changed the description of the item. I do have a screen shot of the item description and picture before the change. She offered no way to rectify the situation.

Desired Settlement: I would like the item that was described at the price that was listed. As this is a blatant case of false advertisement, and if she emailed me to clarify this, I was clearly not the first person that ran into this issue.

Business Response:

I came across a listing for the following "Open country Add a Tray (2 Pack) for the Dehydrator" for the sale price of 19.99. " 

that is correct , she ordered , "Open country Add a Tray (2 Pack) for the Dehydrator" for the sale price of 19.99. "

Yes the web site showed and described the dehydrator that these trays are for. In no place did the web site ever show or state she was purchasing a dehydrator.

We have sold these trays several times and never had a complaint or problem.

You can find this product displayed the same way we were displaying it from several web sites on the web,.

Customer not happy so we are obtaining a Dehydrator and shipping it to her for free.



Consumer Response: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. I received the item that they were shipping out for free yesterday.

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
