I pretty much only shop at Safeway. I just stopped to buy cookies for a retirement party at work tomorrow. You know, the ones in the bakery section in plastic containers where the sticky label with the price, date, etc holds the container shut.
So I get home and start to peel off the price and notice that it appears there are two labels. What? Was a new label slapped over the old one and are these cookies not as fresh as marked? Yessiree bob! The top label says "sell by Aug 19" and the bottom label says "sell by Aug 15."
Now, I'm sure the cookies will be fine, but it's the principle. IIRC, years ago I seem to recall Safeway was doing the same thing with meat and were sued and supposedly ended this practice. Apparently not.
I'm going to take pictures and send them to corporate headquarters and save the label and show the store manager the next time I'm there. I don't want or expect anything, but I don't think they should be doing this.
