Company to Notify, Issue Credit to Affected Shoppers

Matthews, N.C. – Harris Teeter announced today the company will reimburse shoppers who purchased Casey’s Seafood crab meat from its stores from January 1, 2010 through June, 2015.

Today, the President of Casey’s Seafood, one of Harris Teeter’s former crab meat suppliers, pled guilty to mislabeling certain crab meat. As a result, Harris Teeter is refunding its customers for the full amount of any Casey’s Seafood crab meat purchases made with a valid VIC card between January 1, 2010 and June, 2015.
