I like to have my yogurt and almonds in the morning after my workout. One tub of the stuff was left in my reefer, so I headed down to my local chain supermarket to stock up.

At the dairy case I noticed a couple of shopping carts heaped with egg cartons ... odd. As I began selecting yogurts from the case it clicked in the back of my mind that the tubs weren't cold ... in fact, they were not even cool.

That's when I noticed the store guy a few feet away continuing to banish eggs from the cooler.
We made eye contact, and he went back to work. I leaned into the yogurt cooler to take a peek at the temperature gauge: 65 degrees. Whoa!

As the store guy trundled off with his load of eggs, I checked the egg cooler: 65 degrees.

Obviously, there was a refrigeration failure and the store was going about clearing the shelves. Yogurt is supposed to be stored at 40 degrees or cooler, so I have to wonder why the store guy never mentioned anything as he watched me load up my cart.

I would think they should have roped off the area like they do when the floor is wet from mopping. But no.

When I got to the check out lane I mentioned to the lady that they "might have a problem in the dairy section." She knew all about it. "Yup, they're working on it right now."

Had I put the spoiled yogurt on the conveyor belt for check out, would she have said anything? I guess I'll never know.

(I checked the service desk. Too early for the manager to be in)
Caveat Emptor indeed!

Yeah, that probably happens more than I'd care to know about.

What happens when the store manager goes to open and they find the cooler is not as cool as it should be? They get it fixed and sell the stuff that sat for several hours at 60F.

It explains those 'unexplainable' bouts of percolatin' buttcoffee, I am sure.

Never being one to pooh-pooh the advance of science, let's take this opportunity to conduct an experiment:

scott-s, store some eggs at 70F for a week, cook some up, and report back on your CUR (Charmin Utilization Rate). You are on the verge of something big!

Ha CUR, I'll remember that one! Well from a hen's POV her eggs are not a food source. However I do remember going south of the border and seeing eggs sitting out in the open air markets in 88F temps and wondering about the chance of getting a bad one.

I'll take mine pan fried sunny side up with lots of pepper.

Eggs do not require refrigeration, especially if they are turned over daily. They will keep longer cold but a few hours at room temperature is not a problem. And I doubt if--unopened---products made from pasteurized milk are that delicate, either.
Now that sandwich in your trunk is another matter!

I've been finding expired goods on the shelf more and more lately. Most recently was a whole carousel of packaged sliced pepperoni. The butcher begrudgingly carried them off when I pointed out the 2 month old expiration date.

I check everything now after twice buying expired multi-packs of capicola/salami/pepperoni.

A few stores here have been busted for re-labeling packaged meats with new expiration dates.

My sister and I often went food shopping with my mom because her macular degeneration was so bad she was for all practical purposes blind as a bat and couldn't see the quality of produce or read the E dates on the dairy products. She always worried about eating old, or spoiled food because she couldn't see well.

Much of that date expired food goes to local food banks around here. The locally baked goods for example gets pulled off the shelves if they haven't been sold in three days, keeping their inventory fresh for the store based consumer. Freezer burnt meat, dairy, produce, and pasta as well. Up until 8 years ago all that food was going to the land fill and being wasted. Its now being used by people that for whatever their reason find themselves living hand to mouth. So it's kind of a win win, as I think the stores are able to write this all off.

I would change grocery stores and tell the manager why you're doing so.

The reason I'm so attuned to the temp of dairy products:
Many years ago I traded shifts at the patrol station I was assigned, so that I could get four days off in a row. I drove to the Colorado River where the sun shone, the liquor flowed and a good time was to be had by all.

Unfortunately, 8 of us had breakfast at a local restaurant where, unknown to us, the power had failed during the night, and the now- icy-cool milk we were drinking had baked overnight as the ambient temperature hovered at 90 degrees.

We 8 were sharing a single-wide mobile home with one bathroom, seeing the arrangement as acceptable on Day One .... becasuse who spends time inside at the Colorado River?

Skip ahead to the effects of the spoilage:
I still, 40 years later, remember sitting on the lone toilet gushing from the south end while vomiting into a bowl on my lap, with 7 other of the afflicted lined up for their turn.

My return trip across the desert in my non air conditioned VW bug was made worse by the realization that I was looking at working my regular shifts, plus two back-to-back double shifts that I owed for getting the days off.
