Strange that you post this now or just that I see this now.
Maybe a week ago, while at my mom's house I started making a sandwich. Normally she buys her bread from Walmart, sometimes Food Lion.
I laid out two pieces of bread and turned to get some turkey out of the fridge, and then this terrible, chemical smell hit me. I started looking
around the kitchen for the source of the smell. I checked under the sink to see if any cleaning chemicals had spilled, back in the fridge to see if
anything was leaking. Nothing.
I looked at the open bread and sniffed it, and there it was. It almost smelled like finger nail polish remover and walnuts (?) kind of. I threw the
two pieces away and checked the date on the bread. Still soft, not a speck of mold, but it was almost 3 weeks passed it's expiration date.
Later when I was on the phone with my mom I mentioned I threw the bread out because it smelled strange. She had made a sandwich for lunch that morning
before work and said she smelled something as well, but didn't realize it was coming from the bread. She said "It looked fine. I didn't realize it
was that out of date." Luckily, she did throw the sandwich out.
I've been reading labels more lately, and the more I read the more I want to step away from anything store bought.
