This is NOT the first time. Well definitely will be the last!!
WAL MART SELLS OUT DATED FOOD AND DRINK PRODUCTS QUITE OFTEN!!
I have bought several things that have been outdated, so I began to check each and every product before I purchased them.
I sent my son to get some things the other day Jan.2nd IT HAS A SELL AND USE BY DATE OF DECEMBER 14TH.
I have been so sick every since I had the first drink of the $6.00 cranberry juice. Didn't realize what it was until I just went to pour another glass and was SHOCKED to see how long it had been expired. I have a receipt to prove the date it was purchased.
PLEASE BEWARE PEOPLE OLD FOOD IS NOTHING TO PLAY AROUND WITH! THEY HOPE WE JUST DON'T SEE THESE DATES SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO
” EAT THE COST”
WHAT A DISGRACE!!!!!!!!!!
I will be soliciting the advice of the health department and possibly a lawyer tomorrow morning.
As I've said, this is by far, NOT the first time! I'm not the type of person to degrade a business publicly but this can be a serious danger!!
I have been VERY ILL from this, and want to WARN others of this dangerous practice they CONTINUE to do to their consumers.
Cake mix was the first expired product I had bought, which made my son so ill I had to take him for major GI tests that were very costly.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
I will never shop there again!!!!!!!!

Yuck. Thanks for the head up! I actually can believe that they still sell outdated food though, so it doesn't come as a big shock. But I will definitely check everything before I put it in my cart the next time I'm there.

I purchased some pre-packaged lunch meat last week, it was dated to be good unopened til sometime in toward the end of January. It was green meat inside. Absolutely gross!

My wife bought some ground chuck there the other day. And the next day when she went to cook it, it smelled horrible. We threw it out. We just had some chicken we bought there and had to do the same thing.
Since: Jul 11

Every place in america sales some kind of outdated items. Its impossible to keep stores full or food checked for every expired item. I will be the first to tell you though that unless its expired meat or dairy products it IS NOT going to make you sick!! there are food pantries and scratch and dent stores that sale the stuff by the tons everyday and it is expired and NOBODY gets sick! expired juice and cake mix would NOT make anyone sick there is nothing in there to make you sick. So if your sick don't blame it on Wal mart, its just that time of year and its going around. Do you think if eating an expired item such as juice or cake mix would make you sick that the government would actually let all of these places sale it or provide it to people who can't afford anything else? NO they wouldn't. Sounds like your just trying to knock wal mart, but its like i said all of them do it and it WILL NOT hurt you in any way.

I suggest that you learn how to buy groceries, instead of looking for some excuse for your own lack of diligence. I check the expiration date BEFORE I buy a product.

I always check the expiration date, especially on meat and dairy. Bought hamburger at walmart in date went to use it the next day and it was brown in the middle. It was still in date, I threw it in the garbage.

To all of you JERKS out there, I was simply trying to warn you. You must not have had the intelligence to be able to READ AND COMPREHEND what I wrote. That does require comprehension skills, not ignorance!
I ALWAYS check the date, my son went that day first of all.
SECOND if you had any intelligence you would know that ANY flour type food that is past the date as the cake mix was, it can indeed cause you to be sick!! Mold spores grow very rapidly!!
I didn't even mention the RANCID meat we purchased that looked just fine on the outside and WITHIN the date, only to be opened the very next day ONE Ribeye looked fine, the other was brown! We asked to speak to meat department manager and was completely ignored. I made my mind up then not to buy meat from there ever again, except I didn't throw it away, I returned it. Tried to talk to a manager that cared, guess there isn't one in the store!
Here's the thing...they need more employees if they cannot check all of their products they shouldn't be in business PERIOD! Google drinking rancid juice know it all up there!
This is my hard EARNED money paying for this food, not the GOVERNMENT! I have a job, so don't tell me I need to get one, can you say the same or are you a wal mart manager or employee??
I'm not one to run a business down unless they FULL WELL DESERVE IT!
Do you see the other complaints here? I am NOT the only one complaining!!
Only the mindless trolls who live for drama or degrading, have posted to the contrary. To me that speaks VOLUMNS, as it will to the INTELLIGENT folks reading this!
My other child has a severe allergy to mold so go read what eating any flour product will do to you that has mold in it. and before you say,” I should have SEEN the mold”, well make sure you read closely! Just as with pancake batter muffin mixes ETC.
THIS WAS A WARNING, IF YOU WISH TO IGNORE IT THEN SO BE IT, THAT'S YOUR BUSINESS! TO THE INTELLIGENT ONES THAT WILL HEED THIS WARNING,,, well that was my WHOLE POINT!
PEOPLE ARE PATHETIC, JUST RATHER CRITICIZE AND CONDEMN INSTEAD OF USING INFORMATION GIVEN TO THEM! So.when you're sitting on your toilet and feeling like you're dying sweating profusely with major stomach cramps and it ruins a few days of your life, just remember, someone TRIED to warn you!
This is a small town with limited options. I've seen people here complain about spending money at Elizabethtown stores instead of here locally...week if we had a trustworthy store to go to we wouldn't have to look else where now would we??
#11 Jan 11, 2013
I suggest you learn to read and comprehend a post before making this ridiculous statement!!
#12 Jan 11, 2013
As far as seeking an attorneys advice, that was not for monetary gain!! That was for PUBLIC SAFETY.should have specified the ATTORNEY GENERAL AND AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT!
Like someone could site over juice anyway,,, get real!! Oh wait, maybe when an infant or elderly pertain is seriously ill and hospitalized, they could probably sue for damages.
Perhaps you should sue your parents for damages!!!!!
#13 Jan 11, 2013
I also purchased meat that was within the date listed only to open it and find it was bad. I then opened the chicken I bought just to check and it smelled awful! It was disgusting. The neighbors dog got into my garbage and was so sick it died. Yes it was her fault but had the meat been good, it would have never been thrown away in the first place.
Thank you for posting this I will be more diligent. I wish there were a Kroger down here.

I just checked my cranberry juice cocktail that I bought in the refrigerated section, it wasn't 6$ it was 3.58$ I bought it on January 3rd and it also had the December 14th exp date!! I've also had stomach illness, I thought it was from a ” bug” going around, but maybe that's why so many of us are ill?? Makes sense. I did look up effects of drinking outdated juice and while it says it shouldn't be a problem, it also says that it can in fact cause problems for children and elderly or those with compromised immunity such as, myself, who has Lupus.
I have my receipt and I will be taking mine back today also and will call the health department as well. They have a responsibility to make sure their products are safe. Mine was the refrigerated kind so it is very possible they failed to keep it cold while sitting waiting to be stocked. When I read the article online, this would cause bacteria to begin to form.
I've worked in a grocery and I know they rotate stock to put the oldest product in the front and fresher ones behind them. Someone should have seen that!! Especially in the refrigerated section. Judging by the comment from the employee and the lack of intelligence they display in their writing, I can see how this could be overlooked, or they just don't care. Probably young and immature not knowing the dangers. Obviously they do not know how to make intelligent conversation so I doubt they can work intelligently either.
Thank you for the warning, most would just throw it out and not care about others as you do.
I for one appreciate the heads up. I won't be as trusting anymore, will probably go to Etown Kroger as well from now on. This has happened on several occasions with me as well.
The lunch meat I purchased was slimey and stunk, I just threw it out. The pork chops smelled horrible it was a big pack I planned on returning is why I kept the receipt.
Thanks again for taking the time and caring about your fellow man! More people should be like this.
BTW cranberry juice tastes bitter anyway so I think it would be hard to tell it's bad until after it's to late.
Ignore the foolish people, the ones that matter appreciate it. Maybe they will grow up soon, or learn the hard way as well. At least you tried and it worked for me so thank you!

Before you go downing someone maybe you should learn to spell check, and know which words to use correctly in a sentence. Also, it would help to write useful information. Maybe someone would take you seriously. Jus sayin!
#16 Jan 11, 2013
We've seen the garbage you write on this site so your 2 cents in this matter equals a negative dollar! I did keep it refrigerated, even have a cold bag I bought from Thirty One Co.
Go back to your ignorant threads about how floppy your ding dong is idiot! Hey maybe that's why it is floppy, you're not getting proper nutrition or your brain is fried from drugs, hmmm that's a tough one, I'll go with the latter!
#17 Jan 11, 2013
waaaaaaaaawaaaaaaaaaaaa you suckers believe every stupid thing posted on this site, sad pathetic you are.... sick from cake mix mold spores LMAO stupidist crap ive ever heard!! like i said people buy millions of products every year that are some out of date and they dont' get sick or die or it couldn't be sold!! just have to look for some excuse to blame it on i guess. Grow up and get the facts before you act so dumb and make such idiotic statements.
#18 Jan 11, 2013
Practice common sense.
Take it back if it's defective.
Shut the f**k up.
Carry on with life.
PS: Make sure your refrigerator works and you are storing food properly.
#19 Jan 11, 2013
Did you not read what the people wrote or do you just like to degrade people with your vulgar obscenities? They were trying to warn others.
To be cautious, you on the other hand just want to be obnoxious. Big difference.
Nice character you have. I bet you don't even cook, momma does it for you still ehh

own a Surplus Grocery store in Hanover Pa. Although I am not amish...I work with them, and supply some of them with our wholesale division. We offer the same great savings on just about everything you can think of in the next 10 minutes, and grew our Salvaged Grocery business over 15years. Yep....Expired is a good thing in our lives. We learn't long ago people are sooooo....unbelieveably mentally conditioned on this subject. Based on the high handed ideals of some, and the mis-informed indiiduals, guess who is not saving a bundle. Expiration dates are greatly in place to maintain manufacturing, not safety, not quality necessarily, not all the things most folks think that are in there best interests. Can you imagine owning a huge manufacturing facility packageing corn or beans or both and maybe many other types of vegetables when all of the sudden your sales team comes up and say's "Boss...the farmers have over-grown all the products, we have also over-manufactured so much stuff that all the wholesalers and retailers are filled up with our stuff and don't want anymore for a little while untill they sell some off. OH my...what would you do? Think about it folks...Your tires have an expiration date...Everyone out there can't be brainwashed that bad can they?edpatt

There is virtually no such thing as expired canned food. Multiple long-term studies have shown that as long as a can has no dents, the food item properly canned, and that it was always stored in an area with no temperature extremes then canned food can last two decades or more. Of course, Americans have become conditioned to thinking that things expire, but it is exaggeration. Canned meats usually stay edible for as much as ten years, especially fishes. Canned vegetables can last for as much as twenty years. So, this article is not only unnecessary, but also builds upon the existing conditioned response of aversion to spoiled food. In a time when more people are buying canned food this article is irresponsible, and I question the editor's judgment.
