Shopper posts pics on Reddit showing Walmart donuts aren't as fresh as claimed

Its donuts claim to be "always fresh."

But Walmart has come under fire after a customer peeled back expiration stickers on a pack of the sweet treats to find they were in fact just relabeled oldies.

The shopper posted three pictures on Reddit — showing the trio of labels, stuck on top of each other, stating the best before date was first March 31, then April 1 and finally April 2.

The caption stated: "Walmart donuts best before yesterday … I mean today … uhh I mean tomorrow!"

The user who uploaded the snaps under the name Planet Rock, claims the "pretty terrible" donuts were bought at a store in Lawrenceburg, Ky.

The Walmart customer added that they had tried to post the pictures on Walmart's Facebook page but said that the store kept deleting his updates.

Why am I not surprised?

Some jackbooted thugs will probably visit this customer. Or he'll be sued.

Who's dumb enough to shop at Walmart and expect quality?

They're not even real donuts, they're not fried, they're baked.

I doubt they ever go McDonalds french fries. Fatties don't care.

You think they are the first? Ever see "marinated" meats in the meat case?

To be fair, it isn't the donuts that are claiming perfect freshness. Walmart is.

-These powdered donuts expired in 1972!

-I can't toss those, you never know when Doris Day's gonna come by, and she loves a good powdered donut.

Wouldn't people naturally peel back all the labels to see what's underneath? I always do.

I was in CVS yesterday and they had a sign posted on a shelf filled with medication for sale, "Be sure to check expiration dates on packages."

Oh. So now the customer has no one to blame but themselves if CVS charges them full price for medication that's a year outdated.

[quote] Be sure to check expiration dates on packages."

I left out that it said to check expiration dates "before purchasing ." it was definitely directed at customers, not employees who were stocking the shelves.

It says "Best by" on the package, not expired.
