a Del Monte Fruit Cocktail tale..

Tuesday, October 03, 2006


Just a few minutes ago, the helper came in the office and informed me and my mom that 4 out of the 5 cans of the Del Monte Fruit Cocktail that we were gifted with had both its ends pop out. I asked her to check the expiry date and she told us that it was going to expire on March 16, 2007. That's about 6 months from now! I was shocked to see the cans, when she presented them to me. After that conversation, I immediately called Del Monte Philippines - and I spoke to a Miss Je Zaguirre - she was very polite and eager to help. She asked me first if the product was a 'Fiesta' fruit cokctail and when I replied 'No' She answered me in a very nice way, unfortunately as she said 'It's not a locally made product therefore as much I want to help you, I can't' But good thing - she gave me the number of another distributor - Macondre. I will contact them tomorrow as it already late. I am attaching some images of the Del Monte Fruit Cocktail cans - all 4 had both ends popping out.

What could be the cause?

Well, your guess is as good as mine..
