Don't Miss


  1. Did you try and take it back to your local grocery store? – you can probably exchange it for one that has a better upc code.

  2. They aren’t reimbursing is ? Ridiculous I’m a single mom with nothing . I have a few products recalled and oops are fault u can’t keep your work spot under control we have to pay ? Thanks ! Not buying this product again

  3. C. Money,
    It does state that you could return it to the store. And yes, you do get a full refund $. No, I don’t work for the company in any capacity.

  4. People should be reimbursed for your product. It has taken dollars to buy this and all you say is throw it out. It should be returned to a store and be reimbursed with actual dollars not coupons!
