    Why are people suggesting that the supermarket replace the items? How are they responsible for customers not putting their groceries away when they get home? Complain, for sure, but I really don't think it's fair to ask for a replacement when ultimately it's up to us to make sure our groceries make it to the fridge.

    If someone decides they don't want a cold item when going through the register it can still there for a few hours before someone decides to return it. Same when people dump cold groceries on around the supermarket, a lot of the time thery are picked up and put back in the fridge even though its been too long.
    For all the supermarket knows this may have been what happened.
    Eeew. That has NEVER happened in any supermarket I've worked in!

    throw both. better safe than sorry.
    i also pack my trolley ocd then unpack it when i get home, not 9 hrs later. it's not the supermarkets fault - yes, bacon should be packed by itself (all raw meat should) but you can't blame them for the fact that it was 9 hours before you unpacked it.

    I'd throw both out. Although the poorly packed bags is annoying, I don't think that it's the supermarkets fault and certainly don't think they should have to replace the items.
