Errors in the control process
Migros Cordon Blius sells out for eight months
A Blick reader reporter buys a frozen collardash at the Daily Migros at Zurich main station. After taking it, he was horrified to find out that the product had expired over six months ago.
Blick readers purchased this bundle of garland in Zurich at the end of September.
When the refrigerator of a Blick Reader Reporter (27) from Dietikon ZH was empty last Sunday, he and his wife headed to the main station in Zurich to buy something.
Upon arriving at Migros Daily, a quick branch of the giant co-op, the choice falls on the frozen garland. What was advertised on the packaging as “Chicken Délice” turned out to be not very pleasant later: “After eating it, we realized with horror that the chicken collar had expired over eight months ago,” a reader reporter told Blake.
“Disgusting, unhealthy, or even harmful”
“I thought I’d be shocked when I saw the expiration date on the packaging.” After all, he now had an explanation for why he and his wife had been experiencing stomach sickness for several days. As soon as they put the chicken cordon in the oven, they noticed a strange smell. But neither of them thought of anything.
“Fortunately, I checked the can before we ate the rest of the garland!” He was shocked by the fact that Migros had been selling food that had expired months ago: “Something like that is disgusting, unhealthy, or even harmful.” In addition, he never thought that something like this would happen at Zurich Main Station, where many people shop every day.
Migros talks about errors in the control process
As Migros writes upon request, expired products are no longer intended for sale. “Therefore, an error occurred in one of the monitoring processes,” spokeswoman Annabelle Ott said.
A Blick reader has already lodged a complaint with the co-op: “Migros has already apologized to me and sent me a gift voucher.” In addition, Migros will now take a closer look at the relevant branch.
Although the reader appreciates the apology, the story was a lesson to him: “From now on I will always check the expiration date.”
