PHILADELPHIA (CN) – A consumer class action against the national drug store chain Rite-Aid says investigators for the New York Attorney General found an “egregious pattern at Rite Aid of selling expired products,” including eggs, milk and baby formula.
The Federal Court suit says state investigators bought more than 600 expired products, including egges, milk and baby products at 112 Rite Aid stores in 41 counties.
Named plaintiff Terri Brennan says she bought expired over the counter medicine at a Rite Aid.
Pennsylvania-based Rite Aid is the third-largest pharmacy chain in the United States, reporting $24 billion in revenue for the year ended March 1, from 5,059 stores in 31 states.
Plaintiffs’ lead counsel is Sherrie Savett with Berger & Montague.
