I opened some boars head dry salami recently purchased from Martins in Charles Town WV. After my children and I sat down to have some slices I bit down on an aluminum chunk of metal. I am sorely sick to the idea that this actually happened. I'm one less a bottom set of dentures thank you very much! Just glad I got the metal and not my children. Though I am concerned about smaller fragments that the may have ingested. Please see the pictures attached.

Seems I can't attach the pictures.

I recently purchased a package of Smoked Turkey Breast and a package of Chicken Breast from our local Ingles store. I love Boar's Head products but I hate the pre-packaging for the turkey and chicken. It was impossible to separate the slices from each other on both products. I didn't have time to wait for the deli to slice these for me and just picked up the convenient packages. What a mess and embarrassment as I was serving for company and could not present a complete slice of either product. You need to redesign the packaging and maybe insert a piece of paper between the slices. Do something, please.

To whom it May Concern: I'm not sure why on earth no one at your company could discern such a simple packaging issue. However since you haven't or it's a marketing play, when I buy the prepackaged deli meat or cheese the ones that are thin and have around ten pieces of cheese or meat in them, why on earth would the package open and reseal from the "top down" yet the cheese is packaged in the container from the "bottom up?" It makes no common sense. I buy the cheese because it's "real cheese" however I always have to either foil the package (which leads to earth waste) OR the cheese at the top gets wasted and hard (which equals to (food and $ waste). This makes no sense. You have the best product. Why not package it correctly? Thank you. A single mom. Leah Harwin

Has Boar's Head discontinued the pre packaged Olive Loaf - or did my store just stop carrying it? I don't want to go searching elsewhere if it in fact has been discontinued. Thanks for advising.

I have used Boar's Head cold cuts for many years. It is the only olive loaf my family will eat among others. I went to Acme and asked for a pound of olive loaf. As the man was cutting it, he said, be careful because I am picking out olive pits as I am cutting. Sure enough, I make a sandwich and there are hard pieces of olive pits in the meat. What is that all about? I have never had this happen and when I spend money on something, I like to be able to enjoy it.

To whom it may concern, I purchased BOAR'S HEAD CHIPOTLE CHICKEN (which we have been enjoying for the past 1 1/2 years from .......... and ............ Market only!).

Yesterday my daughter (19), my brother (39) and me (43) had a chicken sandwich. About 20 minutes to 45 minutes after that all of us had severe nausea, followed by throwing up and diarrhea. The same symptoms went through the whole night and kept us up all night. This morning we feel just a little better with light nausea and headache.

As I said we enjoyed Boar's Head Chipotle Chicken for the past 1 1/2 but after this experience we will for sure not buy it for a very very long time.

Maybe the Chicken was not cooked thoroughly of if it was just old. I still have a little bit left and took pictures for you to see.

I don't know what you will do with this information but I needed to let you know so it will not happen again.

I love your hot dogs, but as many of my friends we won't buy them anymore. Their are only 7 in a pack and rolls come in packs of 8. Why can't you put 8 in a package??? Many more people would buy them because they are probably the best on the market, but 7, I don't think so.

As I will no longer shop at Publix because they are donating record sums to Adam Putnam's Florida gubernatorial campaign, I would appreciate the names and addresses for other stores in my area ( zip code 33467) that sell Boars Head products.

Thank you

Pubix Sarasota Stores are no longer selling my favorite products and when you tell the store employees. they tell us they hear it all the time. Please encourage them to stock the lesser selling items too, as we buy all our weekly cold cuts in the store, and will not go to more than one place to get them. If you want me to buy expensive cold cuts, please keep the product selection- Spiced Ham, Cooked Salami, Olive loaf- among them,

Also, have the stores take pride in the cutting and packing of the product, not just throwing a wild pile of cuts into a bag so it looks like so much garbage.

Publix is a joke when is comes to Boars Head cold cuts. And Boars Head company needs to st8n them out! Publix, cuts up Boars Head's cold cuts and puts the meats in plastic bags and sells them ! Haven't Boars Head told these biz's not to slice until a customer orders right up front ?!!?!?!?!? What is this, Subway ????? Im from Sheepshead Bay. This is gross what is Publix and who knows what other grocery stores outside of NY does! I live in Florida now. THERE;S NO PLACE LIKE HOME THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME NEW YORK !

Just a question that I would like addressed please: why on this fabulous planet would you even think of packaging your amazing hotdogs in 7ct amounts when buns are in 8ct ?!?!?!?!? That to me speaks of insanity on the marketing committee! I work in retail in a store where your products are sold. Plus, the price point on the dogs will not lead me to purchase another package to use up the one leftover bun. BH dogs are wonderful but seriously? 7???? Go back to the drawing board people!

Thanks ;)

Shopping At Harris Teeter

St Simons Island Ga

Your new self serve cold cut case and cheese/ This is faster than waiting in a long line at this store but the cheese is always stuck together and difficult to pull apart to make a sandwich. This is not the item packed at the plant these cold cuts are cut up at the deli in the store. This will be the last time we buy product from that type of selfserve case . We have also noticed that your yellow American cheese taste different these days it no longer taste like real cheese more like cheese food that you buy in the dairy case. We no longer buy your product at Publix in Brunswick GA due to poor handling of your cold cuts and long wait times. We have been maken the 25 mile drive to Harris Teeter that's one way but will re think that forward as now their service is also terrible. My wife and myself now question if the cheese is Boar's Head Brand or bait and switch with another product. They have a large deli department and it seems that your product is lumped in on table tops with their cooked food at Harris Teeter.

I have been a user of Boars Head products for about 5 years. I have had no problems with any of the products that I have purchased up until about 1 month ago. I have been buying Boars Head lower fat and lower sodium american cheese for at least 4 years and all of a sudden it does not want to melt. Have you changed the recipe or something? I find this very frustrating when trying to make a grilled cheese sandwich and it does not melt. What is going on? I never had this problem before. Just to let you know I switched to Boars Head after finding out that Land O Lakes is not real cheese but a cheese product. Could you please clear this up for me? It would be greatly appreciated. I still love the products but I will have to change to another cheese.Thank you kindly, N. Mazrolle, Windsor Ct. 06095

I wanted a SMALL ham for Christmas because it was just going to be for my husband and I. Couldn't find a small ham that I was used to getting sooooooo I decide to invest in a boneless 3 1/2 lb boars head. Paid $24.00 for it.... yes....$24.00. It said it was sliced...but it wasn't. It said to apply the glaze on it, but I had to buy the glaze. (another $4.00) I baked it according to the directions and it was HORRIBLE. The cheap hams that I'm used to buying are always so moist. This ham was tough and dry. I knew I didn't OVER cook it. I actually baked it another hour just so we could eat a little. The worst ham EVER. I will NEVER go broke again for boar's head ham. I was going to try to make ham soup with it, but it's just to tough. Thanks Boar's Head. You ruined my Christmas dinner.

You only have to warm it up for about 20-30 min in a low oven 325 degrees covered. Add a 1/3-1/2 cup of water to the bottom. and the only ones that are sliced are the Applewood smoked hams, not the Sweet slice. hope this helps. I demo these hams and they are the best. In five years, I've only come across one or two that have a tough spot in them.. You don't have to cook them, they are already cooked. Only warm them up.

Bought a salad from Publix that states handcrafted with Boars Head and it had a rubber band in it. Maybe not Boars Head's fault but their name is all over it!
