Deputy Head of Roskachestvo Alexander Borisov told how to recognize stale goods and determine the actual shelf life.
He noted that unscrupulous sellers often try to pass off stale products as fresh, so it is important to carefully study the appearance of the product if it is produced or packaged in a store.
You can also demand from the seller in accordance with Art. 10 of the Law “On Protection of Consumer Rights” full information about the product.
“This includes not only information on the price tag or in the product labeling. At the request of the consumer, the seller is obliged to provide a certificate or a declaration of conformity along with invoices for the products, “Prime quotes the expert on August 9.
So, if there are doubts about the specified expiration date, which could be interrupted, you can check with the consignment note.
If an expired shelf life is found, Borisov advises to contact the store administrator, make an entry in the Complaints Book, and also inform the Rospotrebnadzor authorities.
On August 6, the Association of Internet Trade Companies (AKIT) told Izvestia that due to the new SanPiNs for the provision of services to the population, the delivery of goods from stores could double in price – an average of 600 rubles.
