We all know what graham crackers are supposed to smell and taste like â€“ sweet and crunchy. But some people whoâ€™ve recently purchased Nabisco Honey Maid Graham Crackers are complaining about a strange smell and terrible taste.
Dozens of complaints from across the country are posted on ConsumerAffairs.com. People are also venting on Twitter using the hashtag
Many report a â€œstrong chemical odorâ€ similar to â€œpaint fumes.â€ Some use the word â€œrancidâ€ to describe both the taste and smell. A few people say they felt sick after eating the crackers. Many vow never to buy the product again.
MondelÄ“z Global, the company that owns Nabisco, said it's aware of complaints about some batches of their Honey Maid low-fat graham crackers.
A company spokesperson would not say whether any of those complaints involved people who said they had gotten sick after eating the crackers.
â€œOur quality team is engaged and currently investigating this matter,â€ said spokesperson Laurie Guzzinati.
When asked if the company had any plans to recall the product, Guzzinati said: â€œWe believe this to be a food quality issue and not a food safety issue.â€
