  • The majority of issues with damage have been from the last 6-8 months, even though less dramatic denting (like yours) has always been an issue.

    • Yoder's Brand

      I did a quick search and found sold under the Orval Kent Foods and Yoder's Brand names an Amish Macaroni Salad recalled May 2008. Don't know if they are a subsidiary of Yoder's meats. I did not spend a great deal of time searching, although this might be worth further investigation.

      • Looks like they have a history of recalls - macaroni salad, potato salad, and deserts.

        • Almost forgot, there were also recalls on Yoder's brand bread stuffing.

            Note that Yoder is a VERY common Amish and Mennonite name. We have a Yoder's Market just down the street from us, and another one nearby is owned by someone named Yoder and they aren't closely related.

              • So what's the deal then when Steve says he IS the manufacturer? Can that be taken any other way than he's saying that he IS Yoder mfg.?

                  Well it could be taken with a grain of salt as it seems pretty clear he is a liar and a thief.

                    • I picked up this thread after it was already about 20 pages long or so and haven't read everything in it, but have things really gotten that bad? I haven't ordered anything in 8 or 10 months, but in the past I've had nothing but good service, both in shipping time and quality of food and packaging.

                      Is he still a sponsor?

                      I really like the Yoder meats and want some more, but I don't want to waste my money either.

                        The Yoders Bacon is O.K., I've had way better, but not bad for canned pork, all the other Yoders stuff I've tried is marginal to down right gross.

                          I really like the bacon, fortunately.

                          It's hard to produce bacon that looks like they just shoved the whole critter into an Another Brick In the Wall, Part II meat grinder.

                          I'm surprised people haven't found eyeballs... or worse... in that goop.

                            I believe Yoder's is a private label manufacturing brand that Steve/MREDepot licenses and a cannery in Ohio produces, though you can buy the same products from that cannery on their website under their own name.

                            Usually in a private label canning, the private label owner actually pays for the raw materials, etc themselves and pay the cannery for their production services.

                            It is similar to supermarket brand foods. The supermarket generally doesn't actually own a cannery, they get it done under a private labeling agreement. So it is the supermarket's brand, but the actual production is done by someone else.

                            • My personal preferances

                              I too have received advertising emails from MREdepot, but then again i had placed orders using the WR code long ago. I had always been tempted to buy some of the meat products from Steve, but realized that I was just as well of just buying canned meats in bulk at Costco. Then when Steve announced that he was working with Wal-Mart, it was the last straw for me. I had become discusted with that place years ago. I have not placed a foot inside their doors in many, many years. When Steve talked of his Wal-Mart deal, I was tempted to publicly state my displeasure and my intent to never deal with MREdepot again. I decided not to because so many post were wishing the man well in his endeavers. I did not wish to upset the apple cart and be scorned. But I guess I still rist being scorned with a few of my breef thoughts in this post. People can do as they please, but as for me I would rather pay more for less than EVER shop at Wal-Mart again. If they are the only place that has someing then I don't need it. So after taking the time to read the last 10 pages of this thread, it is clear for me that Steve & Wal-Mart will make fine bed fellows. If S ever HTF, he will find very few friends.

                                Welp, my guess is that Steve gets his personal stuff from Costco too.

                                Kinda like alot of drug dealers don't actually use the stuff they sell, because they know more about it than their customers do.



                                Come to think of it - when he and I spoke of his Honey Shortage during one of the last few Group Buys, he told me he has a Sam's & Costco membership account and considered just running down there and buying whatever he needed to cover the difference.

                                I didn't think much of it at the time, but if you were some huge ass food vendor, wouldn't you just buy stuff from yourself? Then again, maybe he's tried the Beef Chunks too?
