    unreal,, sure would be nice to see some competition for hannaford.  this is the 3rd recall this month.. where’s the usda anyway, nice job evaluating suppliers hannaford, maybe a class action lawsuit would wake your greedy big wigs up. unreal! 

  • I just bought one a few hours ago, cwap :

  • I just moved to NH and have worked for Hannaford for 5 years…. Hannaford is very good at determining healthy and reliable products for its customers…. now the weather definitely may have played a role in these melons, so welcome to global warming #1! #2 Hannaford doesn’t have half the recalled products as other stores. (Market Basket, Stop & Shop, Shaws etc..) Just be grateful that Hannaford is willing to help you out… They take a lot of the blame, when its the distributors / growers fault…  but still its a mistake…. so get over it…. Hannafords primary goal is best in class products and great customer service, making them one of the most successful businesses in New England… They’re a great company and I stand behind them as an associate and a customer 110%

      How come their pharmacy can never get it right??????

      • I’ve had some delays at Hannaford’s pharmacy, but it’s usually been MaineCare being difficult and unresponsive.

      Take it from someone who knows firsthand…a 300% markup on meats and produce isnt exactly great customer service. Its called Greed. People can barely afford to feed their families these days while Hannaford fills their pockets on the backs of their customers and employees. So take your Hannaford marching orders and file them under G for garbage.

    I refuse to shop at the local store “GRAVES” they are a rip off and can’t get a supplier to provide produce or meat that is not contanminated. “We are all about family” what a joke look what they did to one of their own family members kicked to the curb…..and mom let’s it happen. Don’t like the older staff either…..one in particular forgot where she came from…………she’s so much more now can only speak to the more important customers and the rest are ignored………money is money in my world and they are losing more all the time…..

    Two friends and I initiated a fund-raiser for a needy family a few years ago.  We hit the pavement and visited many local businesses and individuals for donations.  Hannaford was the largest company I approached for a donation.  They offered me some plastic drinking cups which would have been fine until they said the only ones they would give me were the ones with their logo on the cups.  I turned and walked away.  We raised over $3,000 for this family, most of which came from everyday people and small businesses.

    “…southern eastern United States.” Now just where might that be? Southern US stretches straight across from the east coast to the west coast. Eastern US stretches from the south to the north in the eastern section of the US.. Could it be that the writer meant SOUTH EASTERN US of A? Even journalists aren’t getting a proper education in basic English and geography. And I’m not buying “typo” anymore !!! It’s a result of a dot.com take over and pushing the print media into oblivion. Thousands of journalists are out of work as newspapers have cut staffing levels, often targeting OLDER, EXPERIENCED reporters and editors who make higher salaries. Untrained journalists are being hired without the advantage of older trained mentors. The younger “reporters” are supposed to blog, tweet, report, shoot and edit videos and speak on TV about stories that are condensed to a sound byte. The stories themselves are shorter and often with less depth, geared to a WEB AUDIENCE and readers with SHORTER ATTENTION SPANS. It’s now OK to use butchered and made up abbreviations, mis-spelling, improper punctuation, improper sentence structure, etc. etc.  When I was in the 8th grade our teacher (Yes, ONE teacher for EVERYTHING. AND NO TEACHERS AIDE!) made our parents buy a daily subscription to the NY TIMES. One paper for every two students. She then had us share a paper. NOT for the news content. For the impeccable writing by journalists following all the rules of  proper English spelling and a higher level of word power. But that was private parochial school without unions.
