Are there still any Scratch and Dent grocery stores in existence? I live in NC, near Burlington in the Greensboro area.

I live in Jacksonville, NC , I've found one in Buealaville NC. It's run by the Minonite Church. Check around, if there's a Minonite Church , they might start one up.

So glad you asked this question. I live in Reidsville and go to both Burlington and Greensboro frequently. Maybe we can get some answers.

My answer is more a warning than an answer. Alot of these places are popping up across the country because of the economy, but there are warnings about using cans that are dented. Testing has been done on items like this, and it has been found that when cans are dented, sometimes chemicals from the cans themselves are absorbed into the food. Although prices can be really cheap on these cans, I don't think it is worth the risk to save a few cents on.

Totally agree with Dee. Even if the can is not swollen, a very, minute hole at the bent crease is enough to allow Botulism to exist.

If you want to save on groceries, Aldi is much cheaper than Walmart!

Shopping at salvage stores can save you big bucks on groceries. But when you're there, take note of the environment. Are there small bugs or tan colored moths flying around? If so, pick the items to purchase carefully. Check each item around the part of the can where you open it or where a jar's lid fits. Look for moth eggs or larvae.

If a product you were planning on buying has one or more on it, do not purchase it. Just leave it at the store. Also beware of cereals, flours, rice, as they can be inside the package already and you won't know until you get home.

If you've never had a moth infestation in your home, and had to toss out all kinds of foods, you're very lucky. Mine even got in unopened bags of dried fruit, nothing keeps the little critters out but canisters. We had to "bomb" (bug foggers) our whole house twice before getting rid of all the moths!

I had to totally re-do my whole kitchen, and pantry. But not until after having to toss out at least a couple of hundred dollars in packaged foods! Now, I keep a bay leaf on every shelf in my kitchen and pantry. I replace them 1-2 times a year.

Great advise! You might also want to check for expiration dates on the products.

Contact the grocery stores in your area. Ask them what they do with all their bent cans.

I believe the name of one is Warehouse Foods. Maybe you can do an internet search. If you put that name into MapQuest, it will give you driving directions. Good luck.

Type Bent and Dent Faulkner MS in a search engine, I recommend dogpile.com because its a metasearch and compiles from all the big names plus others.
