Hi there
I was in a large supermarket and they had a product on the shelf where the use by date was yesterday. I took a picture and emailed them. They’ve just emailed me back saying sorry and the manager has now been made aware. Isn’t this a criminal offence to sell food past the use by date? Could I take this further? I’m not sure what I was expecting but they don’t seem to be that bothered!
