    Chemical tasting and smelling bread from morrisons

    if u shop in morrisons, then ull know the bread thats always on special offer at two for 1.20, seems nice bread at first but lately after a day and half it gives of this really potent chemical smell, i thought i was imagining it the first time so made my fiancee's sandwiches as normal but he said that he ate one cos he was so hungry but tasted like chemicals, he thought it was the cheese or the onion, but made him chesse toasty with fresh loaf of bread and different chesse on saturday and he said it tasted it again, i didnt smell it this time but this morning i opened the bread again and the smell hit me. its definatley giving off some fumes.

    anyone else had this problem??? maybe its a bad batch, i bought both loaves together but one i froze and one we ate immediatley.

    Which Morrisons is it from. Never had a problem in ours?

    maybe you should ring the number on the packet? there could be a factory problem :s

    strood morrisons. bought them last week. not gonna risk buying them again, may be you eat them before they turn and maybe we were eating them before they turned too, just tad worrying seeing as im pregant and my daughters only 22months, even she refused to eat it, before the smell appeared so must be there before the smell comes.

    maybe it's the plastic bag they are packaged in...?

    no its prepacked, its called RATHBONES. Also i usually get the thick or toastie, so it gets eaten quicker, and these were both the medium cut.

    yeah i think ill just change the bread i buy, but may write a letter just to inform that it seems to be doing it. worries me that the chemaicals are in there and we been eating for so few months now, and just eating it beofre the smell and taste comes out.

    Sorry, thought you were on about the freshly baked bread. Never had that one. Like yimmie said though, it could be the packaging.

    I work for morrisons and i dont know that we have ever had a problem with this vbefore you should either contact the store or the manufacturer and let them know so they can investigate. It may just be a one off with that batch.

    Sometimes when you are pregnant you can become very much more sensitive to smells.

    I regularly buy the Morrisons fresh bread and have never had a problem. In fact I find it one of the best stores for the freshest breads. If I have any which is stqarting to go stale, I grate or mini process it to breadcrumbs and freeze it to use for other recipes

    I've noticed bread goes off quicker than it used to, is it not just on the turn so you can smell it but can't see any mold?

    theres no mould, but i find it worrying that im feeding my unborn baby and toddler this stuff. its definately a chemical smell. smells like its been doused in nail varnish remover, so regardless of if its turning theres alot of **** in this bread for it to smell that strong before a h:int of mould :shock:

    I know EXACTLY the smell and taste you are referring too - we used to buy bread from tesco's which was crustless - when you opened the packaging it smelt bad and a horrible taste when eaten - I thought it was me but the whole family commented on it - we did buy it again in case we had a bad loaf but the next one was exactly the same - its a very strong chemical taste and is really nasty.

    its worrying though isnt it. or am i just being silly. im very paranoid about what i feed my daughter, no swets, no chocolate, no squash, etc etc. because of artificial **** and sugars etc. but ive been feeding this bread to her for months now and it cant be healthy,

    We only bought that particular loaf for our youngest but luckily we have managed to get her onto wholemeal bread now but yes it was not right. I presumed it was the chemicals they put in bread to keep them from going off but for some reason it was very potent in smell and taste in this particular brand.
    We stopped her having it as soon as I noticed the smell and taste - don't worry too much though I am sure your daughter will be fine

    Ive noticed the same thing with invisible crust bread. I think thats just the way they are made

    Just curious, can you describe the chemical smell any better? I mean, there's squillions of chemicals in the world, and I don't really know what you mean. Can you describe what you associate the smell with?

    I'm not saying I'll be able to tell you anything interesting or new here (my sense of smell is rubbish - the dog's farts make me want to puke, flowers smell sort-of nice, and I like mints, but that's about it), but if you can figure out the smell, we might be able to figure out what part of the bread's makeup it comes from. And that'd be neat, because I'm all curious about this now.

    [SIZE="4"]I made some dried bread cubes and crumbs from leftover bread that I had stored in the freezer. The day I made them I used some and they tasted fine....the rest I stored, in 3 differrent containers (1 container of fine crumbs for topping casseroles and breadding meat, 2 with cubes for dressing/stuffing). I used some to make dressing to go with our turkey 2 days ago, and I had to throw it away, the chemical taste was so bad. I had this happen a year or 2 ago, and thought I had added some sourdough bread, or something else that added the flavor.

    As I have tried to eat healthier food, I've been quite a lable reader, most the bread cubes in one package was mostly whole grain and organic bread. This container didn't have the chemical small nearly as bad. The container that was virtually all made from white sandwich buns smelled and tasted awful.

    I have kinda concluded that they are adding something that is either breaking down or spoiling with room temperature storage.[/SIZE]
