NTUC FairPrice has withdrawn a range of expired Cadbury products from shelves at its Jurong Point outlet after they were discovered by Stomper Michelle.

Michelle told Stomp that she noticed the expired goods when she visited the FairPrice Xtra outlet on Sunday night (Feb 10).

"They were on sale so I wanted to buy them, until I realised that they had expired," she said.

As she lives nearby, Michelle visited the supermarket again the following night and saw that the expired products were still there.

Photos and a video taken by Michelle show the Cadbury chocolates with expiry dates on Feb 8 and Feb 9 this year, as well as on Dec 13, 2018.

The Stomper added: "I didn't inform staff as I couldn't find anyone around.

"But this is just a reminder for everyone to always check the product label before buying anything."

In response to a Stomp query, a FairPrice spokesman said it takes the matter seriously and has since conducted investigations.

The spokesman told Stomp: "The range of Cadbury chocolates in question was retailed at FairPrice on a promotional basis – these stopped retailing at FairPrice Xtra @ Jurong Point since late last year; however, they were still found to be stocked at the FairPrice store located in B1 of Jurong Point Shopping Centre."

The products were withdrawn from shelves immediately and the lapse has since been addressed, said the spokesman, adding: "We apologise for this oversight on our part and staff at the store in question have since been counselled.

"FairPrice remains committed to uphold food safety and quality standards. Customers with queries on this matter may contact us directly at our Customer Relations Hotline at 6552 2722 or through email at"
