Unsafe? Safeway

Owned by Alberton’s, Safeway doesn’t have a bad score on Consumers Report when it comes to cleanliness, but it’s also far from stellar. It doesn’t make it an unsafe store, but it also doesn’t make it the best store out there. With a rating of 72, it’s fair enough, but they could also do better. Not to mention that, in the context of the COIVD-19 pandemic, they have shown just how seriously they take safety and health measures.

They have said that they take their customer’s safety very seriously, but at the same time, it didn’t help much as the rumor spread that the store was full of coronavirus. They may have taken all the precautionary measures of disinfecting and cleaning their store thoroughly, but if the employees aren’t also careful, then you could have a health disaster on your hands.

During the height of the pandemic, there was a spike of cases in numerous Safeway locations, with 51 reported cases and even a death reported at a processing center. They may have tightened their cleaning protocol since, but it’s still good to be cautious.

      Yes you can stop shopping at Walmart. I’ve only gone in there twice in over 15 years. Deep fryer and a car seat.
      That’s it.
      My daughter called me after calling 911 she was so sick.
      The doctor asked where she had been in the past 3 days. She said Walmart. The doctor moved his arm around the ER. AND said. The one thing you all have in common.

  1. Aaand this is why I pay no attention to Consumer Reports — their “criteria” for condemning products and businesses is usually not remotely relevant to me. All that they succeed in doing is to further damage the U.S. economy. Good grief — wash your hands, wash your produce and get on with your life!

    1. Amen! Funny, I shop at both Stop and Shop and Key Food, and I haven’t perceived either of them being “unsafe.” It’s hard to tell if this article is talking about the history of the stores’ protocol since the pandemic started, or if they’re only talking about recent days. Most indoor mask mandates have been lifted, even where I live, and mask wearing is optional. If people posting on Consumer Reports still think that’s “unsafe”, then maybe they should stick to ordering their groceries online or doing curbside pickup.

    2. So the reason you stop paying attention to CONSUMER REPORT is because they are telling you the truth? Now, they are not “The Gods”, nor do they pretend to be. Some of their ratings have been, shall we say, “way off the mark”, but overall, they are a reliable source. And, as with any source, it needs to be checked. But having traveled extensively around the country, I can say that in this case they are pretty well on. All stores? Probably not, but if there looks to be a pattern, there usually is one.

  2. I had a roommate/friend that is very social and seems to live for the purpose of becoming much closer to anyone that he sees routinely, he reported to me that there were numerous Safeway employees that were infected with the Covid 19 in the first two years of the breakout, still, he never contracted Covid himself and only became infected when he moved to PA where most of his family live and they have no Safeway to shop where he lives in PA. He is convinced that it was him relaxing his normally rigorous hygiene around his family that was the cause of his infection of Covid. I also do most of my shopping at this same Safeway and have not contracted Covid, (but for the grace of YOU KNOW WHO) both My friend and I are very careful about caring for our own hygiene, but it is foolish to rely on others to be responsible for our own personal hygiene, in the area of protecting ourself from being infected, it is very common to see that there are many more customers not wearing their masks than ever before in this very Safeway in 2022 ( may HE give them grace for their lack of personal responsibility) The shame here is that I cannot use the CREATORS name or this post will be banned as offensive. Today is the day of salvation, we are not promised tomorrow.

  3. I live in New Jersey and do shop at Teaneck store, which the store is clean< staff is helpful and registers are always maned, which means lite or no waiting.
    While visiting my daughter in Brooklyn (Flatbush) I went shopping at the Flatbush Avenue store Brooklyn NY 11226. IMUST say I had expected to much, The store was a mess very, very long lines NOT enough resisters open not able to locate a manager, I purchased a cake for my great-granddaughter requested her name be written on it, however, in order to have that done, I first had to pay at customer service window (which had line for people buying lottrey) then return to the cake person.
    My only reason for this kind of service is it is in a black community, where the residence got no respect. Maybe your corporate should take a look ate this location. I must say the cashier I had was very nice she said good afternoon and thank you.

  4. Every business—-stores, restuarnts, bars, offices, medical, dental, hospitals, etc. every public place is back to pre-pandemic days—–NOT CLEANING< NO-MASKS, NO DISINFECTING, etc.

  5. Stop with the damned fear mongering. We get enough from DC and the media. Be more concerned with poisons added to our food through chemtrails, gmos, fake meat etc.etc.

  6. Ratings like this are irrelevant since individual chain stores are what matters. The local management and staff. I have been to some fantastic WalMart stores, so cannot paint them with one brush

    1. SAME HERE, my Walmart is clean. I have been in all grocery stores a night club and anywhere that was open during the so-called pandemic. I have COPD and don’t and didn’t wear a mask the entire time. I am very clean about myself keeping hands washed and not getting in peoples space. I’m 76 and have not gotten sick. Funny how regular flu just pfff disappeared?
