retail news in context, analysis with attitude

CVS has been charged by Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal with selling expired prescription medicines, over-the-counter products and foods - charges similar to those levied at the retailer last year.

"Especially appalling is the sale of expired baby formula," Blumenthal said in a statement. "CVS' failure to properly police and supervise its shelves - allowing out-of-date medicine and potentially rotten food to remain - is unconscionable and unacceptable."

CVS said that it has clear policies for removing expired products, and that any violations were unintentional.
