A keen eyed “CityNews” reader out at Majura Park yesterday (May 17) was surprised to see the “fresh” lasagna was five days past its use by date and still on the shelves.
With a heady mix of meat and dairy this seems like more than a minor oversight.
“CityNews” contacted Woolworths for comment yesterday and has had no response at this time.

UPDATE 19/05/2014 09:40: Woolworths have responded with this statement:
Woolworths works hard to ensure that stock on our shelves remains in date. We conduct regular inspections and remove items that are no longer able to be sold, often marking them down for a quick sale before their best before date.
Any customer who purchases out of date stock that we may have missed is of course entitled to return it to the store for a full refund or replacement.
