Re: Coop caught selling old meat as new

I'm not surprised to be honest. Where I used to work in Ireland (in the butchers section of a large supermarket chain), we often minced old meat (ie about to expire or aleady expired a day or two) and put it out behind the counter. When customers then bought the meat the price tag then added another couple of days before it would "expire".

I never understood how they got away with it all the time ,though to be honest, the meat tasted fine and I never felt ill the few times I ate it. I'm not really squeamish about this type of thing and actually believe that often the use by date is very pessimistic or just plain wrong (like maple syrup that always seems to expire about a month before pancake day...).
Maple syrup is one thing, but meat!!
Another good reason to be vegetarian.
