Consumer alert – Expired Harvest Gold Bread

Consumer complaint as posted by N Maurya, Najafgarh on April 21st In Indian Consumer Complaints Forum with photos

Dear Team,

This is to inform you that recently I have purchased a packet of Harvest Gold Bread from a shop nearby on 21.04.2020 around 6.30 PM & before buying I have clearly checked the expiry date which is 21.04.2020.

I am a daily consumer of this bread but before going forward to my evening breakfast, I noticed a slight different with the packaging of the bread & also there’s this strange smell.

Before consuming the same I have had this proper check of the bread & found out that it is expired.

The issue here is not with the bread of Rs.20 but the behaviour of your distributor who disagreed to replace the package & telling me how he’s saving rs 1 on each & can’t take the headache for 1 packet of bread.

These kind of experiences & rude behaviour is unexceptional & if these people are really Harvest Distributors then I request a strict against them.

Hoping for a respond from their end & far more what if kids at my home would have eaten that. I am really looking for a quick action & procedure to sort this.

Lock down alert : Foods you should not store in freezer

The current lockdown has created a sort of panic among people who are stocking up their kitchens for rainy days. Here’s a list of foods that you must not put in the freezer if you want to maintain their integrity.

7 Foods You Should Not Store In Freezer Amid Lockdown Panic 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some foods are not safe to store in the freezer.

Highlights
  • Stocking food for lockdown?
  • Make sure you don’t put these foods in your freezer.
  • Some foods don’t stay well if they are frozen.

The current lockdown has created a sort of panic among people who are stocking up their kitchens for rainy days. Although, kitchen essentials are easily available, paranoia is riding far and wide among most of the people. We also hear people freezing their foods for future use since many foods have a short shelf life. While it is fine to freeze your dry fruits, ice creams and peas, there are many foods that are good before going in the freezer and not so good after coming out.

Here’s a list of foods that you must not put in the freezer if you want to maintain their integrity.

7 Foods You Should Not Store In Freezer:

1. Dairy Products

Milk is the first thing we want to stock up but don’t pay heed to everyone’s suggestion to freeze cartons of milk. When you’ll take it out and thaw it, it will curdle. Likewise, cheese will turn out to be crumbly and not so cheesy after all.

Dairy products like milk, cheese and eggs should not be stored in freezer. 

2. Fried Foods

We like our fries, pakodas and nuggets for their crunchiness. But these fried foods are sure to lose it if they are frozen. So, eat these snacks all to your heart’s content rather than saving it for later. You won’t mind doing it. Right?

3. Noodles

Want to make noodles during lockdown? Cooked or uncooked, noodles and pasta won’t stay well in the freezer. It will turn mushy after defrosting it. Buy only those many packs that you are going to use soon.

4. Cucumber

Use frozen cucumber slices for your eyes only, not for your mouth. Cucumber, after thawing will be soggy and will taste different.

5. Fruits

Only dried fruits or dry fruits are safe to store in freezer, not fresh fruits. Freezing them will change their structure, taste and bring down their nutritional value.

6. Coffee

Open coffee beans or ground coffee will catch that weird freezer smell and your coffee wont taste the same. However, unopened coffee bags can still be stored in freezer for a couple of weeks.

Coffee beans or ground coffee don’t stay well in freezer. 

7. Tomato Sauce

We all love to pair our sandwiches, chips, snacks with ketchup. If you fear that your local grocery store will run out of it and, hence, you’re planning to stock it in your freezer, please don’t. After defrosting it, you’ll see a mess with tomato paste, water and vinegar, all separated.

Freezing these foods will negatively impact their consistency, texture and taste. So choose wisely the foods that you would want to put in your freezer.
