Out of date goods mingling with fresh products keep us on our toes too. I picked up a packet of croissants in a store in Lower Marsh
yesterday checked on the sell by date, it said August 1st. Found an assistant to tell, he just said "OK" .This annoys me. That little word " thanks" would have been appropriate and would have made me feel that he hadn't just put it straight back on the shelf.
In another branch of Tesco around here I found a box of slimy mushrooms on display and told an assistant. His reaction was to tell me to choose another box, and returned the rotting one to the shelf. So much for my do-gooding !
I can quite understand your frustration, Paramount. Staff training needs to be to a level where they can tell the difference between a runaway orange and a lemon, for a start. Oranges are orange, lemons are yellow.
I would have trouble reading the small print on those shelf labels, especially when not at eye level and wouldn't have thought to have to check on dates. We assume that they know what they're doing, fools that we are. Hope that you have some feedback from Tesco.
