1.0 out of 5 stars Where to start..., August 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Chia Seeds, 1 Pound Pouches (Grocery)
First off, I've been using Navitas goods for quite some time now. I loved them since the start. However, recently I received another order of these Chia seeds in the mail and my love has since changed.

For starters, one bag had aquired a small whole which was leaking a little bit of seeds. Which is fine. It's a packaging problem, not a failure of the actual product. So, I figured I could still consume what was left in the bag itself (which was 99.9% left inside. But here's where it gets much worse..

I dumped the rest out into my "Chia" jar. (I always empty all my food products into glass containers for storage). I noticed a few small twig fragments but I figured, meh, what the hell, a few sticks won't hurt so I decided to eat them any how haha. Over the next couple days I felt a bit more bloated than normal. By the third day, I was eating them and CRUNCH. Right into a rock. A tiny, gray rock. Fortunately, I must have strong teeth because I did not break a tooth.

Then I decided to investigate further. I emptied the whole bag out and found MUCH more debri mixed in then I expected. Along with the rocks, twigs, etc. I found what looks like animal feces -_-

Naturally, I've refused to eat them after all this. But AGAIN. I noticed something strange..

When I empty my packaged food into glass containers, I usually keep the bag for nutrional content reference, etc. It's easy when I have someone over who asks what the health benefit is, etc.
Well, I compared this more recent bag to an older bag and almost ALL the nutritional value was A**-Backwards and different! I'm going to have to post pictures, because this is just freakin' crazy.
I never had a problem with the bags that just tore open and then ziplocked shut. But the newer bag has a pull-tab that tears the bag about 1/2 inch from the top and then ziplocks from there.
Something has CLEARLY changed not just in the packaging, but the quality control, etc.
Anyone else experience this????
