"Re-dating" expired bakery products ... and meat at grocery chains

I hope Mr Saffari has found another employer or line of work!

Supermarket workers are speaking out to CBC's Marketplace about how stores tamper with best-before dates and how it can make food unsafe.

For five years, Mohammad Saffari has worked as a bakery clerk at a Loblaws store in Montreal. He says he was told to change best-before dates on fresh or frozen bakery items such as cheesecakes, muffins and pastries that were weeks or months past the best-before date.

The tactics used to "ressurect" spoiled meat are even grosser, and far more dangerous to health.
