Hefty Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Hefty is a brand name of household products such as trash bags and trash cans, disposable tableware, children's disposable tableware (including their defunct Zoo Pals product line), slider closure food storage and freezer bags, plastic storage bins, and disposable cookware. Originally a Mobilproduct, the brand has been owned by Reynolds Consumer Products since 2010.
According to THE WASHINGTON POST back in July 1992 Hefty was one of the brands (along with Kordite and Baggies (another Pactiv brand)) named in a complaint brought against Mobil by the United States Federal Trade Commission in 1992, regarding claims made by the company in advertisements and packaging, which allegedly led consumers to believe that the bags were more biodegradable than other brands of the bag, despite a lack of evidence to support this claim nor presentation of a specific definition for the term. The FTC dropped their complaint after Mobil agreed to cease making such claims.
Consumer says"They do not disclose the hefty import taxes - beware! Wish I'd read the other reviews before purchasing from them. Quality is not as expected either; don't be fooled by a nice website and good product photos."
Letdsvs d says"I have had to pay expensive border taxes to get my product because it comes from China. Thejuicytrends does not accept to return me that amount. The quality of the product is China quality, not good. Do not buy here."
Aoife Considine says"Saving to buy a ceiling light from this company (amongst other items) which was advertised at the end of August as being reduced from £301.88 to £200.45. Go back to the site today and the very same item is saying it’s been reduced from £437.50 to £290.50!!!! Had several items on my wishlist but won’t be buying. What a con."
SOERDU says"Appears to be based in the UK but the site doesn't make clear that it ships from countries such as China direct to you so that you incur hefty import taxes and duties."
