CVS Sued for selling expired products

Posted in Lawsuits

Just goes to show you that you should always check expiration dates – even if you buy from reputable vendors.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said Monday that his office is suing a unit of CVS Caremark Corp. for allegedly selling expired over-the-counter drugs and other products in its stores in Connecticut.

In a statement, Mr. Blumenthal said investigators from his office found expired food, beverages and over-the-counter medications on sale in 20 or more CVS stores in Connecticut in the summers of 2008 and 2009.

The lawsuit was filed against CVS Pharmacy Inc. by Mr. Blumenthal’s office in cooperation with Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection Commissioner Jerry Farrell Jr.
