A South Australian council is accusing supermarket giant, Coles, of 22 breaches of Australian food standards, after an investigation uncovered it was offering out-of-date, sometimes mouldy, food.
Lawyers for Coles were in court yesterday after an investigation by City of Onkaparinga found more than 17kg of out-of-date meat, pasta, dips and fruit, some of which was mouldy, was for sale at its McLanre Vale outlet.
According to AdelaideNow, the breaches were discovered on 4 April, but the case has been put off until next month after lawyers for both Coles and the City of Onkaparinga asked for the case to be adjourned to allow for negotiations.
The products involved in the case include packets of Moira Mac's Australian chicken breast slices, packets of Primo diced bacon-style pieces, containers of Wattle Valley Chunky Dips baby spinach, containers of Yumis Authentic Hommus Toppers and containers of Wattle Valley Chunky Dips basil with cashew and parmesan.
