Default Grrr...no more Pataks....

Apprantly the FDA have added Pataks to the list of things that can't be imported...the local Co-op was having a bit of a clearance of the stuff and trying to find a replacement, but apparantly most of the range of Pataks products won't be allowed to be imported anymore....

hmmm...somewhat gutted as I loved the spicy mango chutney...

Where did you hear about this? I hope it's not true.

I will have to get myself off to Wegmans pretty damned quick and stockpile.

I went to the FDA website to see if I could find anything to support the above information and I found none. Until I see a news article or official statement at the FDA site stating there will be no more Pataks in the US, I won't be convinced this is true. I also went to the Pataks site and found no news there either.

Although Pataks is all we can get at the moment, I much prefer the flavor of Tiger Tiger products that we used to get at World Market. Sadly, we don't have a World Market anywhere near us where we are currently located.

Well, I don't know what the heck a Patak is, but sorry to hear your bad news! I know I'd throw a hissy if they stopped allowing Galaxy Bars!

Weird coincidence sent the OH off to get some Pataks this morning from Weis and he came back with 3 jars as he couldn't decide what kind to get.

Couldn't find Pataks, so it must be on this months list, seems I'm eating illegal pickled onions though It's surprising what is refused entry.

Well after looking at the list there won't be much, if any, UK stuff to buy.

Couldn't find Patak's on the lists though.
