Spalding: Store Fined For Old Food
The owner of a Spalding supermarket has been fined £3,000 for selling out of date food.
Lincolnshire Trading Standards says it prosecuted Kubus, at Sheepmarket in Spalding, after finding hundreds of items of out of date food.
The owner, Mr Jasem Amed Ali, was found guilty of four offences of exposing food for sale past its use by date and five offences for exposing non-english labelled food for sale.
Investigations revealed that Kubus had been selling these items, including yoghurts and milkshakes, for months to unsuspecting members of the public.
Principal Trading Standards Officer at Lincolnshire County Council Andy Wright said: "Generally foods marked with a use by date are refrigerated and pose an imminent risk to health if consumed after that date.
In the case of this business, out of date food had been removed from the refrigerator and placed in baskets on the floor.
This is one of the worst cases of this type I have come across.
The risk to health was obvious and the penalty imposed by the court sends out a clear message that this is unacceptable."
