Wolfgang Puck chicken broth question?

I just bought this and when I opened it and poured was white? White like milk? It tasted ok but I was quite shocked to say the least. ( I have used the beef version which looked great ) The carton says " Roasted chicken as the 1st ingredient and I would have thought it would have looked like a good home made chicken stock. Any thoughts? Thanks

  1. Just read this:
    It stated that the broth should be brown.

    I haven't tried WP chicken broth tho...

      Well that is why I was a little freaked out. I have made my own chicken stock in the past and it looked brown as per your link. Just can't figure out why it was white? If it was some no name brand I would just put it down to a bad receipe, chuck it and never buy it again. But this is Wolfgang's for darn sake!

        Funny- I was looking at a carton of it yesterday at whole foods---did not buy it tho...I am glad now---yeecch

    2. Oh no I would toss it, that does not sound right at all. If it were me I'd never enjoy what I made with it anyway.

      1. I suggest notifying your grocery store, and even the producers of the WP broth, and perhaps returning the containter or label. If there is something wrong with it, they will want to track the lot and source the problem. With the raw veggie problems of recent days, food processors are hyper sensitive to any safety issues.

          > I purchased the " All natural roasted chicken stock". When I opened it it was the color and consistency of skim milk. Is this safe to use?

        2. I bought a carton of that recently since it was on sale and it was a very rich, dark brown. Sounds like something was wrong with your carton. I would definitely toss it.
