A long-time cashier at a Save-On Foods on Vancouver Island was dismissed after she obtained a refund on bad steaks that she said were striploin but it was later confirmed were actually cheaper sirloin steaks.

Angela (a pseudonym for the cashier) had worked at the company for 13 years when on June 7, 2016, she returned 1.8 kilograms of steaks that she claimed were “sour.” 

She went to Cass Clark in the meat department, and asked him to weigh and tag the steaks so she could claim a refund.
