So one of the Cooked Meats that I have bought from the store today was past its use-by date. Almost a week past…. And I noticed it whilst I was about to cook as soon as I arrived at home.
I have been informed by my friend from one of the law schools in London that it is illegal to sell such items. He advised me to reach out to the Supermarket and ask for compensation or contact a council.
May I know where I can stand with the supermarket and if I can be offered compensation from them? The supermarket is well-known.
I do not just want a refund for the meat as it’s not so expensive anyway…

And you are entitled to compensation for bringing the 'faulty' item back.
Personally I wouldn't ask for that unless they failed to offer a gesture and didn't seem to be taking it seriously.
A replacement and a tenner for your trouble seems appropriate.
Looking for any more "compo" is not.
Not saying you are but it would be easy to do.
Do the right thing and just go to customer services, not every error in life is a compensation case. (edited)
As for compensation you'll maybes get a fiver voucher or something, but it's not really the attitude to have, it was a mistake and you said yourself you didn't eat the product, plus other people have said you could have bought a couple and get them mixed it which in time put the other out of date
The stress of worrying that you'd get sick over eating too much out of date food. It was too much for the OP
Okay, so actually it’s not my story. But it was my little sister who is blinded. She went to the local supermarket and apparently the person who works there helped her to get these two packs of meats. The same item. One of the packages says used by 6 May another one was 12 May. It was bought on 12 May. I am sure it was a mistake but just I was not happy that she could have eaten it if I was not visiting her. It’s convenient for her to buy cooked meats so I was wondering if it could be compensated more than just simply getting a refund. Obviously she is my sister so I was emotional then. Thank you for your input. (edited)
Legit same here Chilled and Meat we rotate, and the date code team checks every item but stuff still slips by
Wow, the staff member gave them the out of date ones that's embarrassing (edited)
Not convinced having a blind relative will provide route to auto-compensation.
Maybe ask csa1 what happened after their sausage experience last month. Their approach was that compensation should be provided based on a pro-rata amount of fine that would have otherwise been incurred
