Big 99 Cent Store Fined $13,225 For Cutting Dates Off Boxes Of Expired Toothpaste

Expired items are lurking on store shelves. A Fox5 investigation followed around the Nassau County’s Office of Consumer Affairs and found evaporated skim milk and diabetic medicine on the shelf that expired over a year ago. At a dollar store, they found the manager was cutting the expiration dates off boxes of expired toothpaste and still selling them. The Stop and Shop was fined $1450 for selling expired goods, the dollar store, $13,225 for 529 items. Don’t forget to check the expiration date, the store, or the Consumer Affairs Office, isn’t always going to do it for you.
