Met Foods Complaint - Dirty, Smelly, Expired Food & Licenses!

Review by sariah on 2007-06-08
JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY -- As you enter the supermarket and walk into the isles it smells like a rat infestation, and the licenses for Met Foods is expired since last year. This place has been closed before for only 2 days but there's strange smell that comes from the bottom I'm guessing there basement, and also I've purchased Hawaiian punch, drank some and take funny, it was expired. There are many products in that store that are expired.

This supermarket is a local market in our area and its horrible people with have to buy these unsafe products please help me.

Have you not tried to contact any public health officials? You obviously have a computer hence you have access to the same resources everyone else has.
Something needs to be done, I agree, if what you say is true, but this post is nothing more than you standing in the street screaming for Superman to come and fix the problem.
Call somebody!

Report them to the FDA here: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Fsis_Recalls/Problems_With_Food_Products/index.asp

Because a sealed can is expired doesn't make it unsafe, it may lose some flavor (Hawaiian Punch maybe). And if their licenses are expired I would call the local agency in charge of that, I'm sure they will be very, very interested.

How about shopping someplace else in jersey city, NJ? There has to be a lot more options than Met Foods.

I agree with superbowl; nobody says that people "have to buy these unsafe products". Go shop somewhere else. I also agree with Sarah May and heaven17; if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. Call the FDA.

How can they still be in business,I'm sure someone has called BS on that store and reported them by now.

Like the others said,find a different market to shop at.

You said they were closed for 2 days?? Because of this?? Pretty disgusting stuff going on in that store. Maybe a freezer went down, and the smell is rotting foods???? Meats??

Either way, pretty suckful. There must be a Pathmark to shop at somewhere??

got to agree with the others, however, don't you look at the expiration dates? Worked in a supermarket part time many years ago..lotta times things get overlooked..I Always check them.
