Recently, a member returned a jar of Batampte pickles because it was not vacuum sealed. Allen Zimmerman called Batampte and was told that none of the jarred pickles are vacuum sealed since they are sold from the refrigerated section. We were also told that Batampte never ever used vacuum-sealed jars.
Pickles sold in aisle 6 are in vacuum-sealed jars since they are not refrigerated.
