its a chocolate drink and its small size hence i bought but who knows when i taste it, it doesnt taste right, imagine if i got kids and drank it without knowing its off they could be hospitalised by now lol

was it refrigerated? milk can still go off before the BB date if its left at a warm temperteture

when you go ask customer service to get a manager - explain politely that you are really upset - as they were bought for your kiddies - also ask if they are sending them away to be tested - you should at least get £10 voucher - plus a refund or replacement


its tescos - they can afford it:thumbsup:

i doubt it it was only left warmin your car or somewhere else

its only spoilage bacteria similar to cheese

so money back is the only way im afraid oh and an apology if your lucky

Am I the only person who would just have chucked them in the bin?

I shall keep that in mind.

Saying that I think it might have been on here were I read someone took a Christamas turkey back but the person got back the cost of their whole meal as it was ruined without the turkey, that was M&S though.

Think I'm just too lazy though, if I could email it back I'd maybe give it a go. LOL

my aunt got back the cost of her christmas feast as her m&s crackers sprayed glitter all over it - ha ha! She got back £100 worth of vouchers, although knowing her she probably scraped it off and ate it anyway!

i was in a similar position last year. bought some scones from them and that night my daughter ate one of them, then noticed that the bottom of the box had mould on it. we checked the rest and found them all to be mouldy. took them in the following morning and went ballistic with the manager. he offered a replacement and sent them off to be examined (i'd phoned trading standards first and they told me you have to let the shop sort it out) 2 weeks later had a letter back from tesco basically saying it was a complete mystery as to why it had gone off early. they'd had no other complaints and they enclosed a measly £2 compensation. not worth the effort of complaining. i wanted trading standards to sort it but they insisted it was down to the company initially and they'd only get involved if tesco refused to do anything or they had loads more complaints. typical trading standards (or consumer direct) bloody useless, only thing they're interested in is busting people for selling dodgy DVDs

i used to work for the company M&S bought their crackers from (they're gone now) and M&S used to "fine" us for every complaint no matter how minor. you wouldn't believe some of the complaints we had

copyrighted feature films or voyeuristic films staring forum members?

something is seriously going wrong wityh britain today

i blame this compensation culture

at the end of the day tescos will here nothing from this
the bottle of milk was in date so what could they do?
they wil lshow due diligence of fridge temperature charts
etc
etc
this is moslt likely the fault of the customer who had it in their car for too long or had it in their trolley for too long and maybe put it back in the fridge and got a bit warm

its the bacon sarnie every morning, wakes me up :thumbsup:

it would have to be really bad to take it to court - but i relish the thought - i hate absolutely abhor tescos - as previous poster said - they are taking over the country - planning permission is so easy for them - no matter how many times the local council deny planning permission they end up going to central government - lining certain people with silver and bingo - they get it - just happened by me!!

to jasonrat - the reason i go to tescos is to find errors - out of date stuff still on shelves - and to get a bargain - i have a choice of 3 in my area - its a part time hobby:roll:

edit - just read your last comment jason - its not a compensation culture - it is one of uk biggest companies taking the biggest stake out of our pockets - and your prepared to let them get away will selling us - the customer who they profit from - shoddy - stale - mouldy - out of date goods ----------------------------- no bl@@dy way!!!

carefull, the relish might be off too.

I actually got food poisoning which was confirmed by the doctor to be bacon from Asda, I didn't even ask for a refund for the bacon, stuff like this happens once in a while. If you can be bothered get a refund and call it a day, there is no point getting upset over off milk.

Spilt milk however is a different story...

Reading this thread makes me think of one thing - spellchecker.

If I was you I would be more interested in suing your school than worrying about the milk from Tesco.

We find walkers crisps packaging has gone down hill lately, we often find a completely empty bag in the multi pack or a split bag, they are great you contact them online and they send you £4 in vouchers just for one split bag in a large multi pack, we have had this with the last three or four packs now (and this is genuine). They are going to think we are scammers at this rate!!

As for the original complaint food that has gone off is bad enough but when its aimed at kids its even worse as they have a less well developed immune system. This could have really made them poorly!

you can make numerous quirky meanings by just adding a comma in this sentance.

for example:

1- I actually got food poisoning which was confirmed, by the doctor to be bacon, from Asda (Why was you being examined by a pig?)

2- I actually got food poisoning which was confirmed by the doctor to be, bacon from Asda.... (was he just a doctor-ling at the time?)

:lol:

I'm really bored today, amuse me people.

The best way to build their immune system is to give them a taste of the bad stuff, well, that's my excuse for not tidying anyway.
