    To whom it may concern: I woould like to know what in the world do you do to your products. Everything crumbles no matter what I buy like your grahan crackers, already made pie crust also your multi-grain club crackers, I am really dispointed int these products of the keelber brand. yours truly Mary

    I nor anyone that i talk too will ever buy any of your products again after the shoddy Michael Phelps treatment . This kid has spent his whole life in a pool to train for a very heroic act(8 golds). Shame on you for conveniently looking the other way after his DUI and trying to draw the heat from your own failure to police your peanut supplier by drawing attention to a harmless teenage party act. Where were you on Bill Clinton or the wall street terroists from Economic 9-11 2008. You suck!!! I’ll never eat your death food again and don’t say that you didn’t know. Maybe Michael Phelps didn’t either.
