Security Tag In Steak Packet

Recommended Posts

Guest

Just microwaved a pack of Lidl steak to defrost before frying. Had partially opened the packet, not realising the paper label had a metal security RFID (?) tag in it which nearly set fire to my kitchen!!!

Is this normal?!?!?! (the security tag bit, not the fire bit).

Boozer I used to go in would sell ''lifted' steak

The Iceland on my high street even tags the cheese

Damned are the cheese stealers, for I have spoken! :blink: My wrath is worse than the big stapler in the accounts department. :(

My local Tesco Express caught a chap a few years ago who was walking into the store, picking up several packs of steak, taking them to the self-service, putting them into a carrier bag and walking out. He did this repeatedly.

They caught him when a member of staff saw that he had piled a heap of steak-filled Tesco carrier bags just a few yards outside the front of the store.

No one has any idea how long he had been doing this for - hours, days, weeks, months? Who knows.

I thought it was hilarious.

I suppose there is nothing new...

The juxtaposition is stunning. For some reason reminds me that on the way home today I saw a Peregrine Falcon settled in the middle of the road. I thought it was a pigeon but it was clear, so much so that I hit the brakes before it flew off!

Noticed that all the largish packets of meat / chickens / cheese have these security tags on them, in all stores - Tesco/Sainsbury's.

.... a pack of Lidl steak .... had a metal security RFID (?) tag ...

Is this normal?

Indeed it is.

What is less well known is that the tag is itself a security vulnerability, leaving the meat open to ID theft. The details can be lifted with dedicated h/w or by an android enabled smartphone. They can then be used in CNP transactions (Cattle Not Present).

The stollen meat ID can also be broadcast over grazing areas to lure cows into the back of waiting trucks, in a so called Near A Field Communication attack.
