Bad Beatrice milk at Pharma Plus
I like Beatrice milk and I used to buy it at PharmaPlus store at Yonge/Eglinton.
Recently, a new PharmaPlus opened on Avenue Road. Yesterday, I bought a 2 lt carton at the store
At the cash I realized that it was cheaper than usual (3.99 vs 4.59). The expiry date was Apr 27, so it was well within the valid date. At home I discovered that the milk was bad, with a bitter taste.
I remembered that it had already happened before at the same store: I bought a carton of Beatrice milk for 3.99 and it was bad.
I’m wondering if it’s the store who is selling bad milk at a discount price, or it’s the company who rigs the expiry date?
Has anyone had similar experience with Beatrice milk?
I'd vote for bum storage before it hit the cooler. Seems the take-home lesson is don't buy milk from a pharmacy.
A Shoppers near me just expanded into dairy. I see the milk sitting in crates in the sun out back for Lord knows how long before it's shifted inside plus I see no 'fridged storage inside apart from the floor display--hmmm.
