Agreed on the spoilage -- We've always found Broughton milk to spoil quicker than other brands -- it makes no sense, but it's definitely true....always has been.

The closest Meijer store around here is in Lancaster??? I know for a fact you don't tell WalMart what you are doing, how much space you want, etc. You do what they tell you or your out. That happened several years ago with Rubbermaid and they did get back later.

Asknot,,, you must be the king of the idiots. I was just saying that it seems the milk expires before the date on the jug of Broughtons than the other brands I buy.

For those of you who believed it was Wal Mart that cut ties with Dean Foods, it was not.

It was Meijer's that decided to use their own dairy farms.

If you spent a little over four seconds with Google instead of just wild-guessing things, you would have found out.

Broughton's milk spoils quicker than any other milk I have tried.

Please read this article again. Most of these comments really have nothing to do with it.

The person from Cutler said she heard it from a "friend". Wow, now there is a credible source.

I would say Texas needs to look deep into the daily activity of the plant. Personal issues are there. Production manager and plant manger are on a mission other than what is best for the company. Replace them, and their way of doing things, and they will recover

I am afraid the future of Broughton's here in Marietta is slowly being fazed out, like alot of old businesses.

Any one working there should have figured this was coming. Don`t put all your eggs in one basket. They have pulled production of every thing but Gal. and 1/2gal milk they have not made anything else for a while. If the family would have just got along!

I was thinking Giant Eagle is the one that dropped them.

I have thrown out numerous containers of cottage cheese because it tasted on the sour side, they don't make it in Marietta anymore. I miss the sweeter taste - daughter says Aldi's is close to the taste - will try.

Giant Eagle? The article clearly states it is a major national chain. Giant Eagle is a small regional chain with stores in western PA and central-eastern OH. There is only one chain big enough to shake down the giant dairy conglomerate Dean Foods.

If it's Giant Eagle they are losing no loss to me ...that store has priced me clear out the door besides having tasteless meat.

I like my milk without rBST/rbgh. In my opinion milk coming from cows not treated with these hormones taste much richer and less bitter. One of the reasons I could never stand the taste of Broughtons (or anyone elses milk) until I started buying Giant Eagle branded milk. Ironically Giant Eagle branded milk is made in plants owned by Dean's Dairy.
