No More Tickets for Selling Spoiled Food

It used to be that storekeepers would get a rather hefty fine for selling food that is spoiled or past its expiration date. According to my counterpart at Detroit Undercovered, however, that is no longer happening.

The website is reporting:
Two men entrusted by the people and sworn to protect and serve who for personal and political gain are allowing party store and grocery stores operating in the city of Detroit to sell expired food items to the citizenry of Detroit. Assistant Chiefs Ralph Godbee and Robert Dunlap issued the edict calling for officers to look the other way as these business endanger the lives of the people of the city of Detroit.

HELLO WARRENDALE...
WHEN I PATROLLED WARRENDALE, I WROTE NUMEROUS TICKETS FOR EXPIRED FOOD, TO LIQUOR STORES, GAS STATIONS, AND PARTY STORES.
BUT, IT IS HARD BECAUSE SOME FOOD
HAVE CODES THAT CAN'T BE DECIPHERED BY THE SHOPPER..THAT IS WHY I TRIED TO GET THE LEGISLATURE TO FORCE COMPANIES TO PLAINLY DATE ALL FOOD ITEMS WITH DATES THAT WERE LEGIBLE AND UNDERSTANDABLE..
BUT YOU CAN HELP FIGHT BAD / EXPIRED FOOD STUFFS IN WARRENDALE..
WHEN YOU GO INTO A STORE - LOOK FOR THE DATES ON THE PACKAGE OR JAR AND IF OUTDATED, TELL THE MANAGER AND THEN CALL THE DETROIT POLICE - IF THEY DONT RESPOND, CALL THE WAYNE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OR EMAIL WCS WARREN EVANS AT.........
WEVANS@CO.WAYNE.MI.US -
YOU CAN STOP STORES FROM SELLING
BAD FOODS BY BEING AWARE OF THE EXPIRATION DATES AND TELLING THE MANAGER AND POLICE...
BE ATTENTIVE WHEN YOU SHOP - YOU COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE..OR THE LIFE OF YOUR NEIGHBORS..

Ugh. This is a problem in Midtown where they advertise a sale on expired items at the University Foods! I will warn my folks to be on the look out as they still reside in Warrendale.
