Expiration dates are printed on foods, baby fomula, and medicines for a good reason. And you should check them when you are shopping to be sure you are buying safe and healthy items for yourself and your family.
New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has fined CVS $875,000 for selling expired food, medicine and baby food. It’s not called a fine. It’s called an ‘agreement’. And CVS is paying up, even though it admits no wrong-doing.
CVS agreed to pay the whopping $875,000 fine after investigators found expired merchandise in 60% of its 432 New York locations, including in The Big Apple. And this is after CVS made a previous agreement to stop selling out-dated perishable items. The full story is in USA Today.
