14 May, 2021

Supermarket giant Tesco has been fined £7.56 million for selling out of date food at three of it's stores in Birmingham resulting in 22 breaches of the Food Safety and Hygiene Regulations between 2016 and 2017.

A Tesco spokesperson said: "We're disappointed that a small number of out-of-date products were found on sale in three stores in 2016/17.

"The safety of our customers is always our priority and these incidents are not representative of the high standards of safety and quality we expect in Tesco stores.

"We took immediate action to address this at the time and we want to reassure our customers that we have robust procedures in place to make sure that this doesn't happen."
