Local Supermarket Had Expired Food on Shelves

Two months, even four months past the sell by date and still on store shelves. We found several items in a local supermarket past their sell by date.

We received an email from a viewer saying she bought a box of Boca Burgers that were two months past its "best if used by" date.

So we headed to the United on Amarillo Boulevard check it out for ourselves.

We, too, found four boxes of Boca Burgers with "best if used by dates" of October 27, 2007.  We also found a box of Morning Star Farms Veggie Bites with a September 3, 2007 sell by date.

When we brought this to the attention of the store, Spokesman Eddie Owens assured us this is an isolated incident.

Owens also says if you ever buy an expired food item, bring it to the manager's attention and also return it for a full refund, no questions asked.

We also spoke with the Texas Department of Health and it says those sell by dates cover the quality of food, which means the food may be different in flavor or aroma if prepared after that date.
