I found a piece of glass while eating Quaker Oats. I have taken photo as well. Now I am very scared to eat oats and to give to my family as well. Quaker is a trustworthy healthy food but after this incident trust has gone.
I am an Engineer, and have already contacted Quaker Oats twice about their cereal packages that are used to put milk and/or water in and then microwave them. The milk and/or water drips onto my kitchen floor and counters, making a real mess! There are at least two holes in many of the packages, which should not be there. This has happened in at least two of their manufacturing facilities. At least one is in Canada, and at least one other is in the USA. I suspect that all facilities are affected due to the flimsy paper now being used by Quaker. Apparently, they are now using flimsy paper on their conveyors in order to cut down on weight size and the paper is ripping during sealing the packages on conveyors and in transportation to the stores. Additionally, this could be the source of bugs discovered in the cereal that people are complaining of!

I open a pack of Oatmeal and observed small black spots. I had to remove one and placed an LED Light on it. They were big and it moved. I took a picture and dumped it. I had taken a few spoonfuls. Disgusting.
Purchased a box of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats 5 lb, 2 pack from my local Sam's Club. I finished by first bag, and now on my second, and have just noticed many small weevil looking bugs in the oatmeal. We've purchased many boxes of Quaker Oats, and this is a first. I have a sealed oatmeal exclusive container that is used after the bag is open, to keep the oats fresh. It's very disconcerting to realize the amount of insects that have been consumed.
I have now had two 5lb bags of Quaker Quick 1-Minute porridge oats which were crawling with weevils and smelled extremely stale. The sell by date is Jan 2024 so they were well within the date. I looked up online and filled in the PepsiCo complaint form, which took ages, submitting photographs, etc. I waited ages for a reply then received a summary response telling me to contact the representatives in my own country and providing details but no email, etc. I did as I was told and waited another fortnight. I've just received an email saying that I had been put through to the Spain office and to contact my local office - NO details. This company treats its customers with contempt. I am simply disgusted!
I purchased my Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal from Costco. This morning as I'm eating my breakfast, something was hard in my mouth and sharp. I pulled out a shard of glass. Looking down in my dish there was another shard of glass sticking up from the Oatmeal. This is outrageous.
I have been using Quaker Oats for almost a year and I got new pack as usual. And putting it in a jar and I found bugs inside it, black color. Never saw it before then threw the jar right away... Whoever will buy again this brand pls be careful and check the pack before eating.
I cook oatmeal at least twice a week. Last week I found a piece of glass in my oatmeal. I threw away the remaining of what was left in the box then purchased a second box from Walmart. After cooking oatmeal from the new box, I found a glass shard in my bowl of oatmeal. Finding glass twice is too much. Unfortunately, this has ruined my love for oatmeal. The glass did cut my tongue slightly this time around but that is not my biggest concern. While raising children, I fed them oatmeal a lot. I am concerned for babies who could consume glass while eating oatmeal. The company really needs to do some research and find out what is going on.
I used to love flavored Quaker Oats and my kids also. This year 2022 have purchased the apple/cinnamon/maple mix boxes at 2 separate stores. Threw out the first box because it tasted horrible like fake sugar that leaves horrible aftertaste. Tried another from Costco and again strange chemical taste that seems to stay on my tongue. Not sure what they have done but it is not the same and I will no longer buy it again. Sad maybe something happened during Covid. They need figure out what they messed up.
I was enjoying my oatmeal this morning, as usual, when my tooth hit something hard. Luckily, I removed it and found a small piece of glass with sharp edges! Could have caused some serious damage! I will be tossing the remainder of the product out, along with an unopened box in my cupboard. Never again will I buy this product! I am attaching a photo!
