Additional Information

When considering buying meat from a door-to-door salesman BBB recommends:

Do your research. Ask the salesmen for written material about the company and let them know you are going to research them first before doing business with them. 

Check for a BBB Business Review.

Report any unlicensed salesmen to the appropriate city or county authorities. Many communities have licensing and permit requirements for food vendors and for selling door-to-door; confirm with your city or county government that the seller is in line with the law. 

Don’t fall for empty promises. The seller might claim to offer a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee, but many complainants had no way to contact the seller if they were dissatisfied. Additionally, the seller might claim that the meat is a higher grade than it really is.

Never pay with cash. When paying by check or credit card you have at least some way to protect your money—such as canceling the check or reporting it as fraud to your credit card company. If you pay with cash and are dissatisfied, you’re at the mercy of the salesman.

Know your rights. If you decide to make a purchase, ask for a dated cancellation form and a dated receipt. Note that the Federal Trade Commission Cooling-Off Rule gives you three business days to cancel the purchase. Saturday is considered a business day.

Report the bad guys. If you feel you were ripped off by a door-to-door salesmen, file a complaint with your Better Business Bureau. 

Consumers with questions about purchasing meat can contact the USDA'S Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-674-6854
