Rite Aid expiry date suit

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Alameda County, Calif. superior court judge orders the drug chain's in-state stores to display notices that consumers might have purchased expired products; additionally, cashiers must ask patrons to check expiry dates of products they are purchasing. The judge's June 10 ruling and temporary restraining order responds to civil case brought June 8 by district attorneys from Alameda, Merced and Santa Barbara Counties, as well as city of San Diego. The prosecutors accuse the store of selling out-of-date "infant formula, contraceptives, pregnancy tests and baby medicines throughout its California stores." Another hearing is scheduled for July 21. Rite Aid says it is discontinuing sale of dated products 60 days prior to expiration, up from 30 days, and has stepped up its management training programs to ensure outdated products are removed from shelves
