That's enough to put me off having salad again.Worms and insects aren't kosher so in order to ensure that lettuce is kosher it is placed in luke warm salt water for 20 minutes. I do it all the time and am always amazed at the amount of little goggas I find floating afterwards.
I must agree with you there, Woolies are very good at compensating the public if somethings not right also in their clothing dept...I have had complete satisfaction in that dept.It's worthwhile complaining to Woolies when you get a dud product. I've received a few R50 gift vouchers for my efforts ... thanks Woolies! And they did get back to me regarding the problem. Last time it was a faulty machine that didn't fill up the milkshakes to the top.
Believe it or not there are pensioners who eat dog food because they cannot afford a proper mealI disagree and I don't think I'm blowing anything out of proportion. The fact is that aniamls have died from eating this product! That in itself is reason enough for alarm.
They did that already last week. Some sweets had peanut in them, but they didn't have it as an ingredient.
What recourse is there on this?...Certainly don't want a free packet of dog food...and monies not going to bring the dog backThey did that already last week. Some sweets had peanut in them, but they didn't have it as an ingredient.
That was withdrawn before any people died.
Their dried sausage often has bone in it.
According to the news media, this dogfood problem was discovered between October and December and there was NO recall. The manufacturers were AquaNutro. One dog dies and the owner has spent "days" trying to get an answer from WW, but to no avail.
BTW, Aquanutro also make fishfood. Time to check on Nemo
It's a chemical that shouldn't be there. They also had to use extremely sensitive tests to detect the chemical. Standard tests did not detect it due to the very low level of contamination.Yes it is I wonder if there's any recourse for those who lost their dogs...
And I mean Woolworths?
We use to supply Woolworths with Organic Assorted salad lettuces, and if they found a worm or so etc they would condemn our whole consignment of lettuces. I'm horrified that their quality control never picked this up!
The Animal food is packed by a company who packs for Woolworths under Woolworths brand name, Now my question is: Does this company pack under other brands that are still on the shelves in other stores??
They have tested all the foods, but only found minute trace amounts of the chemicals in one or two types of dog food. They are pulling their entire range until they find out the origin of the contamination.Woolworths probably removed the dog food purely because people were less inclined to buy it after the accident (which wasn't Woolworths' fault as explained above). As stated earlier, this happened a while ago, and obviously once alerted about dog deaths they would remove all stock of the contaminated batch and replace it with fresh, probably tested stock.
People die because of inadequate testing of drugs. A recent treatment for arthritis being a prime case.
Are you completely mad? If you're willing to subsidise such a system, then you're welcome. Our food today is safer than it has ever been and probably safer in general than producing it ourselves.But unfortunately that's what happened - Woolworths should be banned from producing such foodstuffs until they can guarantee a quality control method that is foolproof.
This substance was found long ago in Austrian wine. They were using it as a cheap sweetener. Many people were affected.It's a chemical that shouldn't be there. They also had to use extremely sensitive tests to detect the chemical. Standard tests did not detect it due to the very low level of contamination.
The question is are there any verified reports of pets dying because of the food? I mean is it actually linked or just a co-incidence?
I would disagree. I'm finding a lot of foreign bodies in foods nowaday. This is quite a recent change and it is very worrying. I'm also noticing a drop in quality. For example, the box or container has not been filled to the top; the contents are rotten, despite the current sell-by etc etc.Are you completely mad? If you're willing to subsidise such a system, then you're welcome. Our food today is safer than it has ever been and probably safer in general than producing it ourselves.
I don't think they are being as thorough as they once were. Production is up so I don't think they are coping. Also the new apartheid (BEE) is not helping because there are more unskilled people doing the same jobs.I am basing this on the fact there is far more regulation and monitoring of food production today.
I wouldn't be suprised. Woolworths sells insectices on the same shelfJust been on the news that Dog pellets bought from Woolworths have been withdrawn from their shelves as there have been reports of dog deaths ...
We bought dog pellets from Woolworths but luckily our dogs refused to eat them...Clever dogs
I was informed of this and did not hear it myself can anyone else that can confirm this please!
