PORTLAND, Ore. -- "The Buffalo are back at Freddy's!"
So read an advertisement for Fred Meyer Inc. here, alerting area consumers that it is once again selling buffalo meat in its stores.
The ad drew attention to a four-day offer that ran last month. A meat department source at store level said the chain usually offers buffalo meat twice a year, and expected the specie to be offered again in September or October. The chain's spokesman could not be reached for comment.
