TIA


To Whome it Concerns,

I brought your sorj lite wholemeal wraps from Woolworths a week ago and went to use them last night to find that the contentes have mold all through then I looked at the best before date and it says 13/04/2012 they were not opened before hand as I put them in the freezer

Yeah just rock up to the 'smokes counter' and they will exchange/refund for you.  Alternatively if you really did wish to write a letter it would read something like this...

To Whom It May Concern,

I feel the need to put into writing the fact that I was most disappointed with my recent purchase of "Sorj Lite Wholemeal wraps" which I purchased from Woolworths  xxxxxx  (<--- insert store name) on xxxxxx (<--- insert date).  These wraps were to use for my childrens lunchboxes an upon opening packaging it was noted that they were mouldy throughout.  Expiry date was 13/04/2012 so as you would appreciate opened with the intention of using quite some time before end use-by date.  

My contact number is (04xx) xxx.xxx and would appreciate if you could make contact with me about the abovementioned issue.


Yours sincerely,





OP I'll be honest and omit that you popped them in the freezer.  unsure.gif


I hope this helps,

You don't need a docket.  Take them back and exchange them.

I do this all the time if a product is no good. Definitely write to the company just include a batch number and type so that they can check their processes.

Attention: customer service/quality control *company*

Dear *company*

On *date* I purchased a packet of your sorj lite wholemeal wraps from Woolworths in *address*, they had a best before date of 13/4/12

On my return home I immediately stored the product in my freezer.

Much to my dismay this morning when I thawed and opened this product this morning 22/2/12 I discovered that they were completely covered with mould.

I have attached a photograph.

Is this product not suitable to be frozen? If so this should be clearly stated on the packet. if this applies

Or has there been a breakdown in the manufacturing process. The product according to it's best before date should be useable for at least two more months? They are stamped with batch number *number*.

As you can imagine I am very disappointed and await your response to my concerns.

Yours in anticipation

(I'd also take them back to the customer service counter at the Woolworths anyway)

I have bought so much dodgy food lately, seriously think it is the weather. We've had moldy  bread, 2 packs of moldy cheese, pasta full of moth eggs and larvae. The wet Sydney summer isn't helping. I've not bothered to return or complain about any of it, good for you though. Hope you get your money back.

It may not be the manufacturer's fault - but could be the fault of the supermarket in how they stored it prior to stocking it on the shelves.

If it's worth my time and $ in petrol, I take the products back to the supermarket for a refund.
