    I filed a claim,never heard from anyone regarding the status of the claim.I sent an email to the above administrator email address,received an email stating this address is not monitored,you will not receive a response.Case is closed.
    I’m curious to know where the money goes when they do not advise or send checks .

    ADMIN – Hi Dean,

    It depends, in some instances the left over money is given to charities. In other situations the money goes to your state treasurer as unclaimed money.

    Monosodium glutamate, aka msg, has been proven to have no affect at all. It’s actually very tasty and is used across many Asian cuisines because it contains umami. To put it plain and simple, it’s like salt. Too much salt, you will get sick. Same with msg. It’s just another spice.
