Default Tesco fined £7.56m for selling out of date food in Birmingham stores

https://www.theguardian.com/business...mingham-stores


[Tesco has been fined £7.56m by a judge
for selling out of date food at
three of its Birmingham stores.
The supermarket chain was handed the
penalty by a judge at Birmingham
magistrates court on Monday and
ordered to pay prosecution costs
of £95,500, Birmingham city council said.
It was also ordered to pay a £170 victim surcharge.

The fine was handed down after
Tesco admitted 22 breaches of the food
safety and hygiene regulations between 2016 and 2017.]



[Tesco said it was “disappointed” that
out of date products got on to the shelves,
adding that it took “immediate action” to
rectify the problems and had
“robust procedures” in place to
ensure there is no repeat.]



Typical.

Reminds me of a favourite quote from the Royle Family


"How did we let those sausages get out of date? Have we won the bloody lottery?"

I think a lot of supermarkets do this with store cupboard stuff, how many times I have cleared out my cupboard and found tins out of date and I haven't had them that long, we don't routinely check dates on flour, tins and store cupboard stuff in general, at least I don't

More realistically, blame the management and corporate side for likely saddling shop workers with more tasks than they can handle in their given shift time.
