Coop sold me expired food

Dear EFers
Late last evening I picked up Actimel from Coop.
This morning when I pulled it out to drink, I saw it had an expiry date of June 10.
Is there an official consumers complaint website in CH where I can log this complaint ?

It's the 15th of June. It'll be fine. Be happy. Life's bad enough already without worrying about yoghurt.

Re: Coop sold me expired food

The official channel for complaints in Switzerland is www.englishforum.ch

It would make more sense though to go back to COOP as they sold you the product.

Re: Coop sold me expired food

Shut up and eat your damn yoghurt. And if you don't like the flavour eat it anyway. If you want customer service, fair pricing and unexpired goods you're in the wrong country so suck it up or emigrate.

It wouldn't bother me in the slightest. If it was crabsticks it might, but it's yoghurt. Yoghurt is off anyway. That's the whole point of yoghurt.

Somebody made a mistake. It happens. Go get a refund, I'm sure they'll do so gladly.

Treesarehalal - great comment and even greater language !
Thanks for changing my opinion of EFers once and for all.
Nice use of anonymity to throw abusive language on the forum.
I hope you know you weren't obliged to reply.

Re: Coop sold me expired food

Take it back along with the receipt, they will probably just refund the money.

Which bit do you object to? "Shut up"? If so then I take it all back, please don't emigrate. Stay home instead - it's a tough old world out there.

Oh... And you are a forum veteran !
Absolutely the kind of language expected from you.
This bothers me enough to deregister myself from the forum. Of course, who cares, right !

Thanks others... I will atleast make it a point to go back to Coop and let them know.

Take it all with a pinch of salt...

Make a post on any forum and you will always get an array of replies from all ends of the spectrum.

Don't let it put you off the forum

In a world of past-the-sell-by yoghurt? Are you mad? We need compensation and contrition and we need it NOW. Oh and I have a bottle of cornichons a day beyond the sell-by....what do you think? Chance it?

Re: Coop sold me expired food

If it really bothers you that much: take the yoghurt and the bill, go back to Coop, have it exchanged. Or the money reimbursed. Problem solved.

And how would you say this course of action compares with posting about the subject on a forum?
