    I bought a Whole Chickenat the Paoli, PA ACME yesterday Sunday 3/30/2014 to make chicken soup, I pulled out the neck, & liver, I was SHOCKED by what I saw, on the Liver
    an elongated green growth/tumor who knows, about an inch long. Disgusting.
    I took pictures, Id be happy to send them to you as well. If I had the money Id take the liver & growth to a lab but Id be afraid to know what it is. God knows what these chickens are being fed and in turn, what we humans are ingesting.

      That does not sound like a pleasant surprise, Kate. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I’d like someone from our product team to reach out to you, so could you please email me at with some additional product information as well as a good way to contact you? Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon. ~Marie

    How are your cows treated at lancaster farms? Are they humanly killed? Free range? Antibiotics? I asked the butcher at my local Acme and she said they were not free range and not organic. I wonder how you treat your cows? Please give some information. Thanks :)

    • Lauren Lauren 22/05/2014 at 12:53 pm

      Hi Kellie,
      Thank you for your questions. All of our cattle are raised in the Heartland of the US. They are humanely treated. They are not organic. They are corn fed, never fed any animal byproducts and are strictly controlled by the USDA. The farms are large and have plenty of room for the cattle to roam. We hope this information helps. Have a wonderful day!

    I purchased Lancaster brand bacon. This bacon is hardley edible due to the salt content. You can only taste salt. do you have a suggestion as to how to prepare so it tasted like bacon and not salt.

    • Customer Care 02/06/2014 at 3:59 pm

      I’m sorry to hear that you’re finding the Lancaster Brand Bacon too salty, Kathryn. I’ve asked our Fresh Product Department to follow up with you regarding how to cook the bacon so it does not taste as salty. Please expect contact at the email address you provided by the end of the next business day. If you need anything else, please let me know. ~Marie

    Are acme meats and Lancaster meats considered the same brands

    • Customer Care 08/09/2014 at 8:49 am

      Hi, Tom. The Lancaster brand is only carried in the Acme stores. The meats we carry in store is the Lancaster brand. Hope this helps! ~Victor

    I recently read about “pink slime” used in ground beef and it passes by unlabeled. Can you guarantee that it is not used in Lancaster brand ground beef?

    • Customer Care 21/09/2014 at 1:24 pm

      Hi there, Sarah. Finely textured beef is commonly used throughout the industry, and Lancaster Ground Beef is no exception. It is important to note that there have been no safety concerns regarding the use of finely textured beef. ~Zachary

    I have a child who has peanut, tree nut, and egg allergy. I also have a Mother in Law that has a gluten allergy. Are your fresh and/or frozen turkeys free of these allergens as well as in a separate factory for those types of allergens? Thank you so much.

  8. Gretchen 21/12/2014 at 1:03 pm

    Sorry, I forgot to add my husband has a shellfish allergy. Are your fresh and/or frozen turkeys free of these allergens as well as in a separate factory for those types of allergens? Thank you so much.

    • Customer Care 22/12/2014 at 1:24 am

      Hi, Gretchen. We will be happy to assist in getting the allergen information for the Lancaster Brand turkeys. Please email your contact information to – we will then be able to engage the supplier for a direct response. ~Victor

    What spice mixture do you use to make your grilled chicken in store? Is this available for purchase at the store?

    • Customer Care 17/03/2015 at 5:30 pm

      Thanks for reaching out, DGV. I would be happy to look into this for you. which location do you usually get that grilled chicken from? ~Mikayla

  10. Monica 04/04/2015 at 4:10 pm

    My name is Monica, and I would like to know that if you lemon pepper Rotisserie chicken is gluten free?
    I read on the label, and has modified food starch, sorbitol, maltodextrin ingredients that can be gluten, depends on what time of flour do you use.

    • Customer Care 04/04/2015 at 6:56 pm

      Hi Monica, since the Rotisserie Chicken is prepared and packaged in a food service environment; we cannot in good conscience, guarantee that the chicken is gluten free. The modified food starch that we use is made of corn. I hope this offers some insight into this product. ~Liralen

  13. karen 07/07/2015 at 9:34 pm

    I purchased a spiral Lancaster brand ham and the butcher when I asked, said I could freeze the ham for a couple of months and take out, thaw and reheat. What a disaster….very dry and uneatable! Followed the directions exactly as noted….so dry and tasted terrible. Please help!

    • Customer Care 08/07/2015 at 4:14 am

      I’m very sorry to hear that this happened to your ham, Karen. I do see that you had emailed our customer care center, and the details of your experience have been sent to the store director. You can expect follow up by the end of the next business day. ~Cindy

  14. Karen grate 22/07/2015 at 3:50 pm

    Can you tell me why Acme will n longer be carrying Lancaster brand honey turkey or honey ham. I specifically went out of my way to buy these products. Nothing else compares. Also, is this in all Acme markets or just Maple shade, nj?

    • Customer Care 22/07/2015 at 9:38 pm

      Hi Karen, thanks for contacting us about the Lancaster Honey Ham and Turkey. If you could email us at, I’d be happy to assist in finding where you can get those specific Lancaster meats. ~Thomas

  15. Robin Sinor 08/09/2015 at 1:18 pm

    I saw another person posted inquiring about the spice used on the grilled chicken, put didn’t see the answer. Could you please let me know what spice you used? I shop at the Long Beach Island NJ location. Thank you

    • Customer Care 08/09/2015 at 2:27 pm

      Hi Robin, I’d like to look into this further. Please provide a UPC code or any additional identifying product information. Thanks, and I look forward to your response. ~Liralen

  16. Joy Connolly 10/09/2015 at 2:28 pm

    I would like to know where Lancaster Brand Meats are processed. I understand some companies are having their hams processed in China…Born and raised in the USA, but processed in China. This is crazy.

    • Customer Care 13/09/2015 at 8:50 pm

      Hello Joy, and thanks for the question! The Lancaster beef comes only from the heartland of America, mostly Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas. It is never imported. The chicken and turkey is grown in Delmarva, the area on the border of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The bacon is from Hatfield. ~Jonathon

  17. Marina 15/09/2015 at 4:01 pm

    I bought Lancaster Brand chicken nuggets in the past they came in a small clear container. When I went to acme the past few times they did not have any. I finally asked and they told me they do not carry them anymore but another Acme might. My kids loved them and always ask for them! Can I buy them anywhere? Do other Acme’s still sell these or are they no longer available? Thank you.

    • Customer Care 15/09/2015 at 9:26 pm

      Hi Marina, if you can provide me with your zip code I’ll be more than happy to look for a location that carries those delicious chicken nuggets. ~Thomas

  18. Marina 17/09/2015 at 11:13 am

    Thank you Thomas! My zip code is 19083

  19. Molly 23/09/2015 at 12:45 pm

    Where can I find nutrition facts for Lancaster Brand deli meats?

  21. Kimmi 07/11/2015 at 6:01 pm

    Wanted to know if your Natural meats are additive and anti biotic free, specifically the pork, chicken and beef.

    • Customer Support 10/11/2015 at 1:20 pm

      Kimmi, thank you for your inquiry. Please provide us with more information on the meat products are you inquiring about. We would like to look into this for you. -Savannah

  22. Walter 21/11/2015 at 7:09 pm

    Is your turkey brined and then frozen or not brined? Should I not salt the turkey as much?

    • Customer Support 22/11/2015 at 7:38 pm

      Hi, Walter. It is suggested you brine your turkey before cooking it. As for salt, salt to your liking. We hope this helps! -Julio, Customer Support

  23. eric schilling 25/11/2015 at 10:03 pm

    can you brine a lancaster brand turkey? or is it already in a salt solution

  24. cathy 30/11/2015 at 12:36 pm

    Does the Lancaster Brand, Mild Italian Sausage contain MSG?

  25. Pat leone 25/12/2015 at 8:00 pm

    recently purchased 10lb prime rib for Xmas. Having 10 people for dinner with plenty of sides. To my utter disgust meat had so much fat in it only could scrape out meat for four guests on Christmas. Totally disappointed in your first class brand of meat. Think this piece was meant for the dog food not for human consumption. Will not be buying your products in the future.
    Very unhappy customer, Patricia leone

    • Customer Support 28/12/2015 at 2:04 pm

      Sorry to hear about this, Pat. Could you tell us which location you happened to purchase the Prime Rib at? We would like to share your concerns with the Store Director. -Julio

  26. Nauticaldoll 04/01/2016 at 11:04 am

    I was going to purchase a roast today. I went to Lancaster meats web site to read about the cows and where they came from and a little about the company. To my dismay nothing was available. From all the comments posted here I will NEVER shop your Meat Department. Your store just opened here in Rye Brook, NY and so far nothing impressive.

    • Customer Support 06/01/2016 at 4:54 pm

      Thank you for your feedback, Nauticaldoll. For any inquiries regarding the Lancaster brand, we suggest contacting them at the following email address: We will share your concerns regarding our Rye store with the Store Director. Thank you for your time. -Julio

  27. George Matovich 06/01/2016 at 1:24 am

    Pat Leone,

    I have never heard such an absurd comment!
    You Bought a Prime Rib, and expected it to be fat free?
    I would suggest that you buy sirloin roasts in the future, if you only want dry, tasteless meat, or top round. Eye of round too, should suit you. Totally dry. That nugget of fat IN a prime rib is the best part! Period!
    I am sorry that you do not like fat in your diet. You lose, not Aye. Did you, by any chance, ask your “10 guests” if they detested fat?
    What a poor hostess you are. Rich, but, OHHH, so unurbane.
