SPRINGDALE,, ARKANSAS -- On June 19, 2011 I purchase 2 package of Corn King Bacon for $3.89 a pack. To my amaze I had to use both packages of bacon to make two sandwich. In both package it was "FAT" with just a little meat around the edge. I feel that Corn King is ripping the customer off. It is unfair to the public to received product like this and there is no way to contact them to register an complaint nor is there a number on the box to call to make a complaint.
Therefore it makes me wonder what is Corn King up to...

We bought a 5 lb. Corn King boneless ham at a store in PA. When we cut slices from it the stuff was loaded with some junk, fat, etc. It didn't even look or taste like ham and it was terrible.
We used to buy this ham a few years ago and everyone like it. It looked and taste like ham. God knows what kind of filler they now put into it which looks strange.
This company has cut corners to put profit before people and disregarding our health.
Just wanted to add to that. I purchased one on December 29 and found the thing riddled with fat particles as I sliced it. I have bought these before and slice deli thin for our sandwiches, but this one is different. I even looked at the label and it says "lean". It was just like washing my hands after handling regular ground beef, very greasy. I don't usually comment on things like this, but I too found myself wanting some answers.
BOVEY, NEW MEXICO -- I opened a 1# package of the above listed bacon and most of it was FAT. I have always purchased this brand but after this morning I am not sure anymore. I weighed the amount of fat I had to cut off and it weighed 10 oz. I had to use the whole package for just the 2 of us and normally I have only had to use 1/2 package.
I think Corn King owes me half the price I had to pay; in the future I will not buy this brand. We are both retired and on a very modest income so we have to watch our pennies.
