I was just talking to my daughter Heather and she asked what my letter said that I sent to Del Monte, since their response (see previous blog) was so much about the food being made in China. Here’s my letter…
December 4, 2008
Dear Del Monte Foods,
I have purchased your fruit cups for years and the last three packages of Diced Pears have been a little weird. Bubbly… mushy… I threw them away as they had been in my cupboard for about a month – even though the expiration date said March of 2009. I purchased a new 4-pack and opened one this morning with my breakfast. Bubbly and mushy. So… I decided to write to you and let you know of this problem.
To my surprise as I turned the package over to find your address – PRODUCT OF CHINA
I will not be buying this product any longer and will look for fruit from the USA !!!! I would rather buy fresh than purchase this brand.
It was really the mushy bubbly problem that made me write… still very odd I didn’t get any coupons!!
