Razor blades found in Kerrygold butter sticks from Best Market in Holmdel

This is being reported as an isolated incident but local to our readership area.

  1. Good thing most people don't just bite into a stick of butter.

    Unless they're at an eating contest, of course.

    1. Considering the obscene price of Gillette razors, it may be cheaper to shave with a stick of butter.

        Not to mention that performance tapers off pretty quickly.

          Update: they caught the dude, so you are no longer a "person of interest".

            I'm always a person of interest!

              To borrow from another thread, if you were to be ignored, would that make you a person of ignorance?....:)

              They arrested a store employee. And I'm wondering what he was thinking??

              Btw, I think Best Market is a good store... friendly employees (except this one, I guess!), good deli, cheese counter, and bakery, and good prices. It's a little out of the way for me, so I get there only about once a month.

                coll and I were discussing Best Markets recently. Since the store is about 10 mins from my home and this is the NJ board I was sharing the local information with CH's who shop at this particular store. I have been but not recently and coll was discussing reasons (like you are) to return and give the store another try. I have an appt with their wine Mgr next week.

              "WTF is wrong with people?"
              Mental illness?

            4. So I guess that's why Best has Kerry Gold butter packed like regular sticks of butter now. 4 bars in a cardboard sleeve. I was just happy that the price was so good!

                I've never seen so many CH's not from NJ take interest in local NJ news. Love of a good butter?

                  Best Yet started here, but we are happy to share it with you! I take this personally, no matter where it happened.

                  1. re: coll

                    Then I'm doubly glad to have shared the news article with you here. I noted that the article took time to explain it was a localized issue being handled. I would hate to alarm all customers where Best exists.

                    1. re: HillJ

                      Oh yes, I appreciate it. They are like a home away from home for me, seriously. No other supermarket I could say that about. We've had a few love fests here on the Long Island board about them in the past.

              2. This happened last week, btw.

                  Correct. When I called the wine Mgr @ that location they said the entire dairy case was being checked. So some of the report is still ongoing.
