OBSOLETE A fresh turkey has been seen frozen and is still sold at Scots despite being over two weeks past its expiration date.
The disgusting find was made at the Asda Chesser supermarket in Edinburgh on New Year’s Eve.
One bird was used by the date December 14 and the other by December 26.
The packaging advises customers to “Buy Now and Freeze by Christmas”, however these products were frozen in the store.
It is unknown if this was done before or after the dates were used.
Both are still sold at full price and have not even been discounted to encourage a quick sale.
Last week, angry shoppers lashed out at supermarkets after discovering their turkeys were rotten when they were taken out of their fryers at Christmas.
According to the Food Standards Agency’s website, “You should never eat food past the expiration date, even if it looks and smells normal, as this can lead to serious illness.
“You can cook and eat food until midnight of the expiration date printed on the product, but no later.
“You’ll see expiration dates on foods that spoil quickly, like meat products or ready-to-eat salads.”
An Asda spokesperson said: “We have strict procedures in place to ensure that all of our products are regularly checked for date coding.
“While we have not received any other complaints about expired turkeys in our Chesser store, we are looking into what may have happened in this case.”
We recently covered how the Scots were given an urgent warning following the recall of several food and household products.
Shoppers have been urged to check expiration dates and lot numbers for many seasonal products.
All stores including Asda, Co-op, Lidl, Morrisons, Iceland and Ikea were affected.
Understandably, concerns have been raised about foods such as mince pies, meat, fish, cheese, rice and baby food.
The products are believed to have been affected by a range of issues, including possibly containing metal shavings, plastic or Listeria, according to the Food Standards Scotland (FFS).
Anyone who has purchased any affected items has been urged to return them to the store they were purchased from in order to receive a full refund.
