A Sainsbury’s local store manager offered a customer £20 to “pay for medication” when she complained that turkey sold past its use-by-date had made her feel ill (the Times, 10/01/08 Sainsbury’s fined). Sainsbury’s was fined £15,000 with £8,000 costs at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court. The firm admitted 7 counts of breaching food-labelling regulations in 2 of its Central London stores in June last year and December 2006.
