A test case involving a rival supermarket chain will decide whether or not a Lancashire superstore is prosecuted.
Lancashire County Council’s Trading Standards department are prosecuting Morrison’s in Riversway, Preston, over two allegations.
The first charges says that the store put on sale a pork, stuffing and apple sandwich which was past its sell by date.
The second allegation is also brought under Food Hygiene law. It accuses Morrison’s of marketing seven foods allegedly unsafe because they had gone past their user by dates.
The foods included sushi, mushroom pate and turkey pieces, which were on sale in 2017.
