I’ve contacted Hans and the product is also stocked by some independent supermarkets, IGAs and Foodworks, and they are going to direct me to some in our area. If you are having the same problem, you can call them on 1800 060 909 or go to their website www.hans.com.au.
And if you want to complain to Woolworths, here is their feedback form.
Meanwhile, there is a real lack of choice for supermarkets in our area, but I think its time to ditch Woolies.
Shame on you Woolworths!
We have been searching high and low for ham since the weekend. As Oscar is intolerant to nitrates and food colours he can only have some nitrate-free specialty ham products (which are not stocked everywhere so inconvenient to get to) or the Hans Country Fresh All Natural Ingredients Premium Leg Ham (which we get from Woolies with our weekly shop). 2 weeks ago our normal Woolies didn’t have any, so we went to the next one over. This week neither one had it and we tried 2 others with no success. I have now discovered that Woolies have “temporarily withdrawn” this product. The reason? “Quality issues” – not quality issues as in its not fit for sale or consumption, no, Woolies don’t like the colour of it. Its a different colour! Of course it is – it has no artificial preservatives or food colours! This is what ham should look like (pinkish brown)! And it tastes great, better than most of the ham they sell.
Shame on you Woolworths for putting asthetics above people’s health and consumer choice!
