This plopped out of my 32 oz. carton of Swanson Beef Broth. I was making Sausage Tortellini soup -- and I had to throw the whole mixture out.

User's recommendation: This is the first time I ever had a problem, but I shall be on the look-out for future problems down the road. This taints my outlook on being able to just pour directly from the box.

*** CHICKEN CONTENT

i have been eating Swanson fried chicken dinner for over 40yrs my recent purchase is 6 pieces of crumbed nothing, I always got a drumstick and or thigh and maybe a breast filler. Tonights dinner is crap other than the vegetables. I'd appreciate a refund or coupon to retain my faith, I took a pic of the crap I got and can provide a pic if you desire. send me a text link for my pic, as isAvoid the fried chicken

User's recommendation: Avoid wasting money on their fried chicken dinner. Constantly going downhill, although the browinie, corn and potatoes are good. The lack of edible chicken makes it a waste of $$$$.

Correct an order

I initiated an order for a few items, including breakfast cereal and flax seed. After spending too much time trying to enter my new address, unsuccessfully, I gave up. The system threw in a charge for "powdered goat's milk" that I never even saw, let alone purchased. After struggling to convince the system that my new address was valid, I realized that Swanson has not improved in the four years that I made purchases from them. Sorry! Pream1027@***.com systems are seamless

User's recommendation: Don't be swayed by low prices; accuracy and ease of entry is mor important.

Complaints

When Swanson tv dinners 1st came out they were good, but now the Hungry Man dinners are the same size as the regular ones. The meat portions are almost non-existent, and you don't give desserts in all of them like you used to. The apple crisp dessert was good, so why did you take away the graham crust??? Now the desserts are no good anymore and the dinners are no good anymore either. What are you trying to do, ruin the company?! Bring back the good tv dinners and the good desserts and the bigger portions.

User's recommendation: Swanson tv dinners are no good and not worth the money anymore.

Complaint

I have been a Swanson customer for over 10 years. There was a missing conditioner in my recent December order. I have written to customer service several times. I even suggested that they could make it up in my next order. I was totally ignored.

Refund and request to fix the problem

I opened a carton of chicken broth to use in a stew and it was moldy on the rim of the carton. I kept it in case Swanson wants to see it. Not the first time. Something needs to be done about the packaging. I wont buy the broth in cartons anymore and I expect a refund. Ruined my whole dinner. Ive always used Swanson because it tastes better. Very disappointed and I will pass on this knowledge of dangerous packaging

User's recommendation: Only buy this in cans.

Since 2016 Swanson cartons have had the self-breaking twist-seal when you open them instead of the old pull-tabs. This means that you break the seal every time you open it. Make sure that the plastic of the seal-cap itself is not broken before buying from your local supermarket.

Bone Broth

I am experiencing dental issues, my purchase and use of your Bone Broth (Sipping cup) is the only thing that makes me comfortable while satisfying my hunger. However I am having problems being able to purchase it in my area. My initial purchase was at a Price Rite market in Hyde Park, Mass. Unfortunately they have not had any additional stock to sell. I would like to purchase additional broth directly from Swanson. Please advise how I can do this or where I may be able to purchase it locally. Thank you, Nadeen M. Correia-Gomes Hyde Park, Mass. 02136 857-389-****

User's recommendation: Drink when you are sick and for regular meal consumption.
