This is one way to make sure the job gets done if the help misses any expired products! Actually it’s not a bad idea to put the customer police to work and perhaps others might follow suit on this idea. BD
CVS and Longs drugstore shoppers who find expired products lingering on California shelves will be able to claim a $2 coupon under a settlement announced Wednesday by the California attorney general's office. "CVS Pharmacy routinely sold expired baby formula, over-the-counter medication and dairy products long after the expiration date," Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown said in a statement. The agreement also applies to Longs Drugs stores in California, which were bought by CVS Caremark Corp. in 2008.
The company said that no customers were harmed and that it was settling only to save time and expense. Customers are limited to one $2 coupon for each visit during which they find an expired item on store shelves.
