That's disgusting!! What did ACME have to say about it??

Customer service has suffered since Giant changed to Acme. Fired old staff and hired new staff with a Walmart attitude. Quit going there because of this. Shop at the Acme and Giant in Easton once a month for meat products and speciality items and go to Food Lion in Fruitland or Tilghman Road for the rest.

They won't miss you. No matter how much you (or your Mom) spend, you will never get perfection. Mistakes and accidents are a fact of LIFE. Get over it. You were not harmed by the glove. Go get your money back (oops, you weren't even the one who paid for it) and be done with it.

At least we now know the bakers use gloves!

wouldn't the latex melt in tbe oven??

It's obviously an accident. If it was a mouse or something I would be 100% on your side, but it is a glove that they wear in the kitchen. It seems to me like it fell off a table or something into the batter and was an honest mistake. Does not seem to be like this was a dirty kitchen issue or anything malicious just an honest mistake. I bet you went to the store and they gave your money back and more and still decided to throw them under the bus.

Good thing that this glove was lost during the frosting phase, not before baking. Human error, not unlike leaving surgery with a surgical instrument left in you. The difference is that there are instrument counts before and after surgeries, counting sponges, needles, clamps, scalpels and blades, etc. so that nothing is left behind. In the grocery store, nobody counts even the gloves.

Acme cakes come in frozen thawed and served. Specials orders are iced for customer request., but the icing is from a tub, not made at store level!

July 18 11:58, Acme did not fire old staff, they were all rehired. So you have the same customer service, same department heads, as Giant,!ASame people, different name!

Whoever was making that cake knew darn good and well that the glove they had on their hand was no longer on their hand so where did it go????? Oh well it slipped off so we'll just keep on going here and set it out there for sale. OMG!!!

Accident or not, its a liability. What if someone accidentally ate a piece? Your "so what" attitude is as disgusting as the incident.

I stand with the consumer on this one. If people actually cared about their jobs this "so what" accident wouldn't be happening.

Most of bakery products are made somewhere else and shipped in

Joanna Anderson said...

I agree. It's not like she ate it.

When you accept lower standards of quality, and sit by and excuse it.... it will become the normal. Consumer is correct. I' glad she found it on first slice.

So true for food lion also

Their cakes are delicious. If you don't want to spend the time making one at home and want a cheap price I highly recommend getting one here.

The ingredients label starts with water and sugar. Yum.

I know the girl who posted this personally. She has two young toddlers. What if nobody noticed the glove and one of her kids chocked on the glove? What if they had a latex allergy? Yes it was an accident but I can only imagine something happening to her or her children.

Anonymous said...

No she didn't go get her money back. Just making it aware to others.

I don't like this new Acme at all. The only good thing about that store is the few Giant employees that they kept. The others are NOT customer friendly or even helpful. I drive over an hour to Giant every few weeks. It's worth it to get what I want and to be treated nicely.

Anonymous said...

I miss Giant, too. I'm glad there are still some of the old Giant employees at Acme, but I don't think they are treated that well. And Acme prices are higher with less selection. Not impressed.

The point is if one of her kids had eaten a piece of that they could have choked to death.

Exactly what I thought!

Yes! You are absolutely right!

That cake is in pretty good shape for pulling a glove out of it???

Anonymous said...

Yes! That was the point I made!

It's sad when you think how nice giant was. I can't imagine people even shop at ACME. Place is filthy.

I do not like the store. I saw that many of the Giant employees were gone within 6 mos. I am now in the process of shifting my prescriptions from the drugstore after months of issues. I have made the trek to Easton's Giant and it feels very comfortable going in there.

Y'all lucky SBY even has an Acme. Soon it will be only shop n bags or corner stores.

As a former employee of gaint I used to love it there. Management was great. They had good deals. Busy days were stressful but I didn't mind because of the happy customers. Everything has changed. No one seems happy. People don't take pride in their work anymore. Careless mistakes. ...How do you not realize you lost a glove? Seriously. Acme killed the giant spirit. Bless the former giant employees that still work there. You are the ones that make it bearable.

Will never go there again. We spent hundreds of dollars per week in Giant. Now it's like shopping in thugsville.

No thanks.

You do not know if it was an honest mistake or malicious intent. Bottom line is that it should not have happened. This is a big deal in the food industry. People buy food with the trust it is safe and had been handled properly. Your nonchalant attitude is startling to say the least. I seriously hope you do not work there.

Most all chain grocery stores cakes come already baked. The cake decorator juzt decorates them. If the glove was inside the baked cake the company needs to know so they can contact the manufacturer. If the glove was in the icing the store needs to know so they can do corrective action.The glove being in the icing is store level. They can see who worked the day it was iced.

We were at ACME one evening. I wanted to see what they offered in the "bakery". When I looked there were cardboard boxes and in them were cakes already iced/decorated and in their plastic containers.. The only thing acme did was maybe write Happy Birthday on them. Same with those pretty cookies. They were in the plastic container and shipped in frozen. All ACME did was place them in the show case and let thaw for you the next day. These are baked in a large assembly line and iced same way. Same with wal mart, food lion etc. If you want a fresh made cake make it yourself or choose a bakery who bakes to order. You know the cake is fresh and icing don't come from a bucket.

giant did the same thing only theirs were made in DC. When you walk into a Bakery do you smell cake/cookies baking. Yes but not in a grocery store. When people advertise they BAKE their bread here but it don't mean the bread if MADE here..arrives frozen, then baked. :)

There's also a new cupcake shop down on Baptist Street. You guys should try them out. The owner is awesome and she makes all the cupcakes from scratch. God knows what's in an Acme cake besides rubber gloves.

I shop at cakes by david and have for 20 years. Everything just as I want it. Always fresh! Their icing is to die for..

What I see before I eat it is not a real problem. It's what I ate that I didn't know I ate is what causes me to have worries.

I usually visit this store after my shift ends about 11pm. The cashier I encountered a few weeks ago had a horrible attitude and sighed loudly when I asked about a simple price check(The item was on sale and he was wrong). Never encountered this at Giant. He was also texting on his phone the whole time. Do you hear me ACME management?

When I was a young man right out of high school, I had a nasty, hard job working in a feed mill. There was a deli just down the street that made great big overstuffed sandwiches, and a group order was often put in that was consumed in the break room in the mill. On about my second, or third, bite from my sandwich, a stink bug crawled out from the mayonnaise and over the top of my sandwich. I told the old men eating with me to look at what I found. Then I flicked it off my sandwich, and ate the rest, because I was a hungry young man with another half day of hard work in front of me, and no time for getting another lunch. Well two old men immediately left the break room and one of them puked. I don't know why it bothered them. The bug wasn't in THEIR sandwich. And the bug that was in mine was still alive and was whole, and not partly eaten (THAT would have been gross). End of story. I didn't get sick, rather I got full. And it didn't stop me from getting more of the best sandwiches in town. The old men complained that I should have thrown the sandwich away when I saw the bug, and accused me of making THEM sick. They made themselves sick. I never liked those old guys anyway.
