Consumer complaint : As posted by Ashu Mandelia in consumercomplaints.in on Dec 16th
Bigbazaar Vishrantwadi, Pune branch is selling expired products by hiding Manufacturing Date and MRP sections.
On 15th Dec 2016, I purchased 5Ltrs Tin of Amul Ghee from BB.
They hid the manufacturing date of 11-Dec-2015 and MRP. Rs. 1925 (ROI) with a plain white sticker and put up a separate bar code at the side of the can with MRP Rs. 1952.00
I only got to know about this cheating And threat to health n life when I removed the white sticker from the base.
Attached is the photo of bill and can for your reference.
Tampering the original label with a new label for extending the expiry date and manipulating MRP is a serious issue . This needs to be brought to the notice of the manufacturer (in this case Amul ) and Food Safety Dept, Pune.
