Westside Market - Past sell date dairy and spoiled food

Ann900 | Jul 29, 2008 02:49 PM

This is the fourth or fifth time in 2 months that I've bought food at the 110th and Broadway Westside Market only to discover it's past it use or sell by date or spoiled. The first time was yogurt- 4 days past its sell by date. I resolved to pay closer attention next time I shopped there. Last month I bought straw-wrapped cheese that was spoiled and rancid.
On Sunday I bought a small prewrapped (in foil) robiola- a cheese that has a natural sour tang. But this one tasted so sour as to be spoiled. The package had a use by date in Italian. When translated it said that the cheese was to have been used within 3 MONTHS of MARCH 16- that's JUNE 16- 6 weeks ago.
(Westside's cheese prices can be lower compared to say Garden of Eden. butif it's spoiled where's the bargain.)
There have been other problem items, as well . Although they are always happy to return my money it's a real drag.

I'm wondering if I'm the only person who has had this exxperience or if this has happened to others?
