J. Higgs Classic Saltine Crackers — Classic Saltine crackers smell and taste bad, made me sick
I've been purchasing J. Higgs classic crackers ever since Sav A Lot started selling them. I prefer them over any other brands. But this last pack I purchased on 7/28, 2013 had a strange smell that I didn't notice until I noticed my soup had a chemical taste. I had close to a half a package of crackers crumbled in my huge bowl of tomato soup like I normally do. I had taken many spoonfuls of soup trying to figure out what I was tasting. When I realized it was a chemical taste I quit eating the soup. After checking the remaining soup in the pot, I realized it wasn't that and then reopened the package of crackers and the smell about blew me away. I waited until tonight to open another pack of crackers to see if it also had the smell and it does. It's been over 24 hrs and my mouth is still burning from eating the crackers, I'm still dizzy but not as bad as last night and I'm still having food poison like symptoms, severe cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and the lack of appetite, mainly for fear of throwing up again. I can not pin point the chemical I'm tasting but considering I'm still sick after day 2, it must be something pretty potent.
Please check the crackers out. I'm afraid of what will happen to someone who might already be sick or a child eating these crackers. I did call the local Sav A Lot that I purchased the crackers from and they blew me off, as if it was no big deal.
