I'm the pastor of a small Presbyterian church and we just had our Ash Wednesday service. In our tradition, I'm served communion last. I may need to change that in the future for quality control purposes! The six pack has a "best by June 1, 12" date on it and the code is LT11F02 03 07. The juice tastes very plastic like and nasty. I'll look to purchasing a brand packaged differently in the future.

I would like to know about as to why the flip top bottle cannot have a bright color cap.The dark blue is hard to see for seniors. I had just as soon to have a jar jelly than hunt for 10 minutes for the flip markings to open it. I have never had any problems with this product. This is a good jelly. How about a bright cap for us old timers. I would be your poster boy.

I drank 1/4 bottle of Welch's 100% grape juice (24oz) and noticed mold in bottle neck. Lid inside was also covered in mold. I poured most down the drain and there is a large mushroom-shaped glob in bottom of bottle. I called Memorial Hospital in Chester, Il. They referred me to Il. poison hotline (1-800-222-1222). They said I may feel ill but not to induce vomiting. My initial concern was for botulism, but they did not think this would be a problem. On 9/14/11, I received a total knee replacement and I hope like hell this does not create problems with that. I intend to contact my physician as soon as possible on 10/14/11.
I am the Dietary Manager at Chester Mental Hospital in Chester, Il., a large maximum security mental hospital. I purchase large quantities of food on a daily basis and recognize that shelf life on various items differ. I also understand that "best used by" is not the same as "do not use" or "expired". We receive and use food items with "best used by" dates regularly. We never use expired items. This bottle has "best used by" of 7/8/11. I did not see the date before drinking, but we have not had this bottle very long. My wife prepares Communion for our church and purchases your juice regularly. I had no idea it was past use by date.
If your product turns to the mess I have in this bottle in this period of time, I recommend you change the "best used by" date to indicate "expired" or "do not use after" date. Not only is this a disgusting-looking glob, but potentially a very dangerous product. I am extremely unhappy with this event and I have been a grape juice customer for a long time. I have the bottle and glob refrigerated and will be more than happy to discuss this with a Welch's representative in the very near future. I await your response.

I recently purchased a six pack of 10-ounce bottles of Welch Grape Juice. I poured some in a glass and took a big drink. It had the worst chemical taste. I then smelled it and it smelled like pesticide. I hope I don't get sick, but it's too soon to know.

Thank you for your prompt reply regarding my concerns about your product. I have talked to my brother, Robert, and am writing on his behalf. He is appalled that you would have the expectation of his providing information to you with just a generic apology tacked on to the end of an email. In an ideal situation, I believe that you could request this information and someone who had not had the unpleasant rat ** experience from drinking Welch’s grape juice could hopefully provide the information requested. My brother was extremely upset at the time and poured the Welch’s grape juice down the sink; the bar code and date code that you requested, and that would be found, on the bottle were thrown in the garbage in utter disgust. I can tell you that the product was bought in Powell River, BC.
I can't help but wonder if you have been contacted by other's concerned of the actuality of what has been found in your product. Although your concerns are noted and it would have been helpful to have this information to be able to, perhaps, recall the case lot batches of Welch’s grape juice, I am sure you can understand his distress from this experience. Robert feels quite offended that you would request this from him and feels that an apology of his inconvenience, in the usual standard format, made from consumer relations concerning less than quality assurance from your product is not quite sufficient.
By asking for this, ultimately, it actually is putting the onus on the consumer and not the company. This is not the consumer's responsibility to provide information, although it would be helpful; it is the company's responsibility to ensure a quality product that does not have contaminants, especially rat excrement, in its product. At this present time he and his family are boycotting your product, which is quite unfortunate, because he has always liked your product and enjoyed the refreshing drink of grape juice made by Welch. I presently am contemplating whether or not I will continue to buy your product and he is quite tempted to tell others of his nightmare experience so they can make the decision whether or not to continue buying grape juice made by Welch’s.
So consumer relations, although this may only be one incident, at the moment, that you have been made aware of and the ripple effect may be minor, I wonder how many people have concerns regarding your product and do not take the time or have the resources to notify you about their concerns? Had Robert wrote you about his experience, it would paint quite the picture with the use of some very colorful expletives regarding this less than fortunate incident. So, at this present time, Robert is patiently waiting and hoping for a better response from you regarding this matter. Please do not disappoint him. Utter disgust, leaving a less than savory flavor in the mouth!

I have been buying Welch's grape jelly all my life. This is the first time the jar of jelly was bad. It has a foul taste and the consistency is like a sauce. I'd very much like a refund or a coupon for a replacement jar.

I purchased a six pack of Welch’s grape juice at my local Rite Aid. I opened and sip one. It had a disgusting taste and funny smell. The expiration date is August 2010. I'm going to call the company when it opens. I feel a little queasy and would like my money back.
