Aunt Millie's Searing Sword Of Schmutz Is Really Just "Food Grade Oil"

Christina sent us an update on her schmutzy bread loaf. According to Aunt Millie’s, the mystery gunk adorning the Seeded Italian Bread is “food grade oil.” Mmmmm!

Thank you for contacting Aunt Millie’s Bakeries. On behalf of everyone at Aunt Millie’s, I apologize for the condition of your loaf of Aunt Millie’s Homestyle Seeded Italian Bread.

From the description provided, the black streaks across several slices of your loaf were slicer marks. This occurs after food grade oil is applied to the slicers. The first few loaves of bread are to be discarded due to this occurring. However, on rare occasions, if a loaf is missed or too much oil is applied, there is no health hazard of the bread being toxic in any way. I will alert the production team to your comments.

I would be happy to send you out replacement coupons if you would provide a mailing address.

And that’s the end of that chapter.
