Nabisco saltines

The saltine crackers taste stale. The store brand off brand cracker which I never bought are my choice now. I have eaten nabisco brand all my life but will never purchase again.
I notice complaints are ongoing and nothing has changed. Apparently the company doesn't care.

Chemical Odor

I just opened a brand new sleeve of saltine crackers. I could NOT believe the smell! It was a horrible chemical smell! I had to taste a little bite! I spit it right out! What has happened to our food? This is very scary!!! I have ate saltines all my life and have never experienced a smell and taste like this before!!!!

Weird look to Premium Saltine crackers

I wondered about the looks of the last box of Saltines I opened. Today I checked other packages in the box, and they were the same. Since I had another box, from the same batch, I opened that and checked those. They were the same. They look as if the backs of the crackers were sliced off while they were still hot; they just don't look at all like the others I've gotten over the years...not even in the past months. They were from Batch number 02AUG16AX27B. Has anyone else had this problem? Do the stores take them back?

At least none of mine have smelled, and I eat a lot of them. I even had my husband check, on the off-chance my "smeller" wasn't working properly!

When I tried to get to Nabisco's website, Firefox wouldn't let me...said it wasn't trusted not to do something to my computer!

Nabisco Premium Soda Crackers

my husband brought home Nabisco Premium Soda Crackers with the following manufacturing data printed on the box:
08JUL16 AZ 3 01-2 03-48
Brand Seal 160Z Original Premium Saltine Crackers UPC 4400000057

Crackers smell like paint thinner or turpentine was used. I took one bite, and the taste immediately affected my tongue and throat and have produced an upset stomach after only 15 minutes. My husband who does not have the best scent ability could also smell the toxicity. The after taste will not go away.

Another Food Manufacture putting profit before brand

I decided today never to buy Nabisco saltines or anything from them again. Soda crackers were a dependable food staple. Because this company developed a brand name in Soda crackers for decades it's now decided to sneak into the market with a low cost cheaper product and they put a brand name on the box. Brands always charge a premium but soon they will lose their brand. This decision came when I opened a large newly purchased box. The box 1 month later smells not just the cracker but the entire packaging. I will purchase alternate brands of soda crackers but never to buy Nabisco, I will tell my grocery managers this as well.

Premium Saltines

I purchased a box Premium saltine Crackers on Feb 3 2016 and they tasted toxic. I had them in my soup and couldn't tell right away. I had 2 of them and then got ill. I had diarrhea after a few hours and still feel sick. I had given one to my dog who usually loves a cracker, she are one and refused anymore. I am stunned the smell of the crackers are horrible. I cannot fathom what could possibly be causing that taste.and odor.

Nabisco Premium Saltine Crackers

Who is the genius that changed the recipe of The Nabisco Premium Saltines? They are an idiot, as the numerous complaints verify. Why not just suck it up and return the recipe to the cracker America grew up on. We loved that cracker. Now it tastes stale, who knows maybe that is the problem, America has refused to buy the therefore they sit on the shelf and go stale. Kraft Foods is foolish to let this happen. I will forever beware of Kraft products.

Saltine crackers

I've read some of the reviews and they describe my experience perfectly! I've loved saltine crackers almost 40 years, but I need to find a new brand. The smell and taste was hard to describe until I read these complaints and a varnish or some kind of chemical smell and taste describe it perfectly. This isn't the first time either. In years past I know 2 or 3 other times I had a similar experience, but at the time chalked it up to being stale but now I know differently. This batch is no more than a week or 2 old, so there is something seriously wrong with these crackers. Please respond so us consumers know just exactly what we've consumed.

Nabisco Unsalted tops Premium crackers

Just opened a box of theses crackers and ate 2 stacked on top of each other. They had a horrible chemical taste, my mouth feels like fat all over and is tingling as is my throat.

Nabisco Preimium Crackers

Though I got a box of contaminated crackers, obviously not. Very bad smell and taste. Smells like bleach or paint. Told Kroger and they didn't really say much. Will have to fine another brand of saltines. Also noticed this from some other Nabisco products

Stale Premium Saltine Crackers

I opened a brand new box of saltines and opened the sealed package, and the crackers were stale. I checked the other three packages in the box and they too were stale! I am so disappointed in this product. This isn't the first box that we have purchased that this has happened either.I would like someone to please explain to me how crackers in sealed packages and in a sealed box can be stale when you open the up! The quality of these crackers are unacceptable!

Saltine Crackers

I have used Nabisco Saltine Crackers my whole married life which is 52 years.
The past year I have thrown away two boxes of crackers because I thought maybe the chemical smell & taste was a problem with how I stored them. I threw away my Tubberware cracker container, bought a new sealed container and same problem!
I will be looking for another brand of Saltine Crackers!

Premium Saltine Crackers

I have been eating Premium Saltine crackers all my life. I have been noticing a decline in the taste in the last year and the box I just bought (9/15) actually tastes like it would make me sick. I will be throwing it away and will be reluctantly switching brands. Hey Nabisco, there are a lot of complaints online about these crackers. Why aren't you responding to the avalanche of complaints out there?

Nabisco Saltines

Just opened a package of Nabisco Saltines. Put some in a bowl of soap. They taste TERRIBLE. They smell like paint thinner or wood stain. Hoping I don't get sick. Strange after taste in my mouth. We will cross Nabisco Crackers off our shopping list. Ended up throwing the whole box away. I'd rather eat a stale cracker than this crap. Doesn't management taste their own product. If they did they can't believe this is good for their brand.

me again

it has to be mildew! it smells like a shirt that has been sitting at the bottom of a hamper for a week or when you forget to throw it in the dryer and it just sits in the wash overnight, then you dry them and your shirt will just smell like that. we are eating grey mold on these crackers. HEALTH HAZARD.

Sounds like a mildew issue to me

yeah they kind of do smell like paint or play-doh or something awful. It is possible that mildew can be responsible for the smell, which means something to do with the packaging not keeping it fresh right because mine were an unopened package. they made my stomach feel horrible and I woke up and I still feel like crap. sometimes molds can produce smells that can smell similar to a non natural product like paint especially when the smell has been trapped inside for so long. so yeah I think its a stale mold smell and that should be investigated.

I first thought it was something different about the peanut butter that I put on them because the smell is really similar to the scent or taste of whole peanuts in the shell when they go bad due to moisture issues. however this mold must just be really bad when on crackers

Nabisco Premium saltines

We have used Premium saltines for many years but will be forced to change our brand. Probably the last three boxes had to be trashed. At first I thought they were stale, but even new packages have a bad smell and taste. My husband, a saltine lover even complained. We are very disappointed.

Crackers taste like varnish....

Just opened a box of Nabisco Premium Saltine crackers and took one bite. It tasted and smelled like varnish. Found another site which listed that this problem has been reported over and over for years. Why has nothing been done?

Nabisco Premium saltine crackers

When I opened the package and got a strong whiff of staleness, I thought it must be my imagination. How could saltines go bad? Especially since I had just purchased them. But after taking a bite out of one there was no mistake. The putrid taste was overwhelming and I had to go wash my mouth out. The taste really was disgusting. When I Googled Nabisco Saltines I found that the problem, resulting from comtaminated recycled plastic, has been discovered many months ago. What I want to know is why they are still on the shelves? Why weren't they recalled? I bought them at WalMart so I'm not about stand around for hours, trying to get a refund from them. But what's being done to get these things off the store shelves?

Burned crackers

Crackers are cooked to long and come out over done. LOOK AT THE CREAKERS THEY ARE LITTLE ON ONE END BIG ON OTHER. THAT IS WHY THEY BURN.

Thank You

too much salt

I bought a box of saltine crackers at Bi-Lo stores. There was so much salt on them they were inedible. The date on the box is 19,Aug. 15 AZ 101-2 14:26. Think that I'll stick to Zesty.

Nabisco Original Premium Saltine Crackers

Just opened a package of your crackers and was met with a CHEMICAL smell. I thought maybe something in the cupboard caused this, but there was nothing around the box that could have been responsible for this. For some stupid reason, I decided to taste one, and it tasted exactly as it smelled - LIKE CHEMICALS. I opened another pack and got the same smell. WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING NABISCO? Trying to kill us?

I went online to make a complaint, thinking I may be the first one to notice this, but I see that there are TONS of complaints about this already. I can't believe you haven't pulled these from your shelves. I am returning mine to my local Vons store, forcing them to smell them, taking a copy of the complaints I see on this blog, and requesting that they pull them from not only their store, but ALL Vons stores until you correct this problem. Shame on you Nabisco!
