0

The Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs uncovered thousands of outdated Nabisco brand products on store shelves in the territory, in an ongoing investigation.
According to a release from DLCA, the agency, acting on a tip from a consumer, found 2,258 outdated Nabisco snack products on store shelves.
On St. John three stores were carrying 1,226 out-of-date products, 858 outdated products were found at seven stores on St. Thomas and – to date – 174 outdated Nabisco items have been found at eight stores on St. Croix. The release indicated the investigation was ongoing on St. Croix.
DLCA Commissioner Andrew Rutnik said, though the investigation is ongoing, fines are estimated at upwards of $80,000.
Rutnik could not explain the reason for the large number of outdated products, but said the department will continue the probe.
In addition to products on store shelves, the commissioner said the investigation uncovered 465 more out-of-date products in Nabisco storerooms on St. Thomas and St. John.
Rutnik called the operation the "tip of the iceberg" in the department's enforcement efforts.
