Major Supermarket Chains Selling Expired Meats?

This was published in Gulf News yesterday.

"Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) has shut down the meat sections of two major retail chains for selling expired meat products, a statement said on Monday....

The meat stalls at Lulu Hypermarket in Al Wahda Mall and Carrefour in Marina Mall were also closed down for three days during the past two months for allegedly selling expired meat and other violations, according to the statement." - Gulfnews.com, 03 August 2009

Scary indeed! Boq and I are regular customers of both supermarkets. I thought big brands come with international standards. It's a shame to know that even these widely known and major supermarket chains have the nerve to fool their customers. Who can we trust then?

The residents of Abu Dhabi are lucky though that ADFCA is doing its job, otherwise, we will not be aware of such fraud because we put so much trust on brand names. I hope that the authorities will look into other supermarkets as well and give notice to the public so we will know which ones to avoid. I further hope strict sanctions will be imposed to these companies to learn their lesson. Consumers do not deserve such deception. IMO, these big players need to apologize to the public!
