Progresso canned tomatoes

Have these been discontinued? I found them missing completely in all forms at both Vons and Ralphs.

    1. I'm almost certain I've seen them at Stater Bros. Try Muir Glen tomatoes.

      1. 99 Cents Only stores routinely have them.

          Well, they would for a while; for reason see below. Now it's November they're probably all gone.

          "Food, Inc." strikes again! General Mills just joined Smuckers on my Prime Evildoers list.

        2. I spoke with a General Mills rep yesterday and was VERY DISAPPOINTED to learn that they have discontinued their Progresso Tomato line. I make a delicious traditional Italian marinara sauce using Progresso and have not been successful in finding a substitute. I am beyond bummed.

            San Marzano tomatoes are relatively easy to find nowadays. Or try well-regarded 6 in 1 brand from Escalon, Calif. -- available at Claro's, e.g. (,... ).

              They're also super-expensive compared w/Progresso. Boo!
