The cost and quality of groceries

Probably most statements about rising food prices are legitimate. But with these higher costs can we not expect good quality? Recently I have bought (name brand) tasteless tortillas, tasteless canned refried beans, tough/tasteless chops and ground meat, and seafood stinky enough to be inedible, perhaps dangerous. These items were bought in first rate stores, not out-of-the-way places.

Complain to your store manager when you discover an item is not worth including in your meal. Is this a way for producers and/or stores to cut corners?
