Changed formula and badly dented cans!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk Unsweetened , 13.66-Ounce (Pack of 6) (Grocery)
After using a few cans, it's obvious to me that they've changed their recipe. The milk is now completely homogeneous which means no more cream rising to the top. I have several recipes that call for just the cream. :-(
I suspect this also means that they've increased the amount of stabilizers/gums in the product. Yuck! I'm subtracting 2 stars.
It looks like I'm going to have to learn to make it myself if I want an organic product that doesn't have additives.
Thought I'd give them another try. This time I received 4 badly dented cans. Botulism is a serious concern here yet the website says these items are not returnable. WTF!

Amazon Customer says:
Dented cans is not a sign of botulism. I would be highly concerned if the can was bloated out and lids popped up like a semi circle. Less than perfect cans is how we get the great deals on the pantry!

Creating Silver Linings says:
Dented cans are at high risk of microscopic cracks which can let in all sorts of unsavory things including botulism. These cans weren't barely dented. They were deeply and sharply dented.
A health hazard is never a great deal. I'll pass.

These are the weakest cans I've ever seen. The cans did come together and most have been dented (bb dated for March 7, 2016). This is not an Amazon issue, its a can issue. I can press my thumb into the side and these cans just easily fold in. The cardboard around weak cans does not do much. The cans are unacceptable. If I run my hand around the can, you can feel the dents on them. Grocery stores typically do not sell canned goods with such flimsy metal, why does Thai Kitchen produce them? This product has changed and proves to no longer have acceptable quality standards. I've used it for years and regretfully need to seek out an alternative.
