Benton's Hickory smoked bacon - major decline in quality?

swarttav | Jun 26, 2007 02:06 PM

I have purchased by mail order Benton's bacon, country ham and prosciutto for some time. The last time I ordered I received a reply that shipping would take 5 or so weeks because an article in Saveur touting them has dramatically increased demand. Whn I finally received the order the the quality of the bacon has gone to h--l. Very fatty, major shrinkage, cooks unevenly. To be fair I am going through the 2nd lb to make sure it wasn't an anomaly. I sent them an e-mail of complaint with no reply - it went from 1st on my list of bacons to last. Has anyone else had the same experience?
