Wal-Mart has a problem with not-so-fresh groceries
By Aimee Picchi
On top of empty shelves and long checkout lines, the giant retailer is also struggling with expired produce and other goods.
Its been widely reported that Walmart doesn't have enough employees to stock the shelves. I don't know if its a cost cutting measure or they can't get employees.
I have noticed less than fresh food in the produce and the meats have expired dates. Some bloggers have found expired stickers covered up as well. How have your experiences with Walmart groceries been?

It's rare that we buy meat or product from Wal-mart. It has never looked fresh to us. That curly hamburger they have is awful.
Knowing that they cut corners in all ways possible to maximize profits the way they do, there's no way I'm going to buy perishable food from them. I thought I was safe buying a stick of pepperoni around the holidays - got it home and noticed it was several months out of date. Back it went.
With all their automated computer driven processes, I don't buy into the idea that they don't know their stock is sitting expired on the shelf. Seems they'd rather sell it to the unsuspecting than pay their employees to mark it down just prior to the sell by date or remove it from the shelf.
I will not shot at WalMart. I prefer local businesses and their food is probably full of GMO

When it comes to groceries, I gave up on Wal-Mart years ago. Looks like my decision is still the correct one...

We are talking about Wal-Mart at school right now and there are two sides to this story. The bad side is how Wal-Mart is moving all of their manufacturing jobs over seas which ends up having a negative effect here in America. But also, Americans are getting rock bottom prices on most goods Wal-Mart...
