This is the last thread I recall on the matter of Escalon's can coding system: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,5085.msg43128/topicseen.html#msg43128.

Correct Peter
Thats how I get the 2006 date
I think PNW gave that same link in reply #10 in the "am I the only one who does not like the 6 in 1 started"  by DJones sauce ingredients
Thanks again

I just received some information from Escalon that appears that previous interpretations or information about the freshness codes on their cans have been misleading, inaccurate or just plain wrong.  The email I received indicates:

"There is confusion on our can codes.  Q6 means Escalon, B is an 8 which is the pack year 2008, G20 is our hour code and manufacturing line.  The product you are in receipt of is our 2008 pack. We have no 2006 product on site @ Escalon."

My apologies to Escalon for ever doubting them.  I always knew they were a great company.  Still the best canned tomatoes in the business IMO and they will continue to be my first canned tomato product of choice.

Thanks for settling that BTB Where did your response come from I have still not heard ???
Looks like Sanchez has some bad code deciphering information and got us all on the edge.
That takes care of 1/2 the equation for me bad dents thats another story as described in detail here.
I just wish someone would get back to me as well?

UPDATE!! 3:45 pm 1/12/09
I just received an email from Tammy@ hienz with regard to my "complaint" ?
anyway, very apologetic and said they would be sending me 6 new cans and explained the confusion over the dates as BTB mentioned above.
Thank you escalon!  heres to many more delicious deep dish!!
 
Update #2 4:14 1/12/09
I just recieved another follow up from Linda Lockhart Tammys boss to make sure Tammy had contacted me
Very impressed Thanks forum for the class action! I hope I did not go overboard here. It was only my 1st order and it was over the holidays its  now in my opinion

A dead Thread :)

John, I'm so happy it turned out great for you with your dented can problem.  I knew Escalon was a good organization and was confident they would make good on your situation.  Here's a note sent to me from Escalon if others find any issue when receiving their great 6 in 1 or other products (hate to sound like a commercial):
 
" . . . we take great care in packing our products to consumers.  We use double-walled, extra-strength packing cases for our Internet orders and now ship no more than six 28 oz. cans/case.  Sometimes damage does occur with UPS, and when it does we ask that consumers return the products to us (at our cost) so that we can (1) send out replacement product and (2) get our $$ back from UPS for the damages.
 
Please advise our friends on Pizzamaking.com that Escalon Premier Brands is committed to quality and customer service, from our largest customer to the smallest one.  If they have any issues with product quality, please contact me direct at 209-552-6009 or Tammy Hanson in our customer service department at 1-888-ESCALON.

Sincerely, 
Linda Lockard, Marketing Dept.

Escalon Premier Brands   --   Home of a Better Tomato"


Whether you like Escalon or not -- and I know that's an individual thing -- one has to say that they are pretty responsive to consumer issues.  And to me, at least, 6 in 1 are the best !

And Yet another follow up by both ! thats 6 responses  from escalon to assure I was happy I AM. Linda was very grateful for the pictures and completely sympathetic to my dented cans. I too think they are great especially on your recipes doesn't take much like Essen say in another thread  less extras can even be better with this 6 in 1 product. Now I can post some pies.

JC,

you might want to post the "Essen" reference in the correct thread. Otherwise people might look at you funny and ask what you're talking about.

Further information about the codes on the cans of Escalon products was sent to me and states:

The code you provided Q68G20, tells us that this product was produced at out Escalon facility (Q6) . The number '8' represents the year of production (2008); G equals the month - for example A = January; B = February etc., and the next two numbers give us the day of the month in which the product was canned.   The next four numbers are the time of day that the product was made.  In this example, the product was made on July 20th, 2008 at 2:30 AM.
It is recommended that this product be used within 2 years of that date for the best flavor and freshness, therefore, you have until July of 2010 to use this product.


I'm sure the cans I have will be used up long before that time.        --BTB                        :D
