        I buy it and make it myself. Cook all my own food.

        I buy organic, however, it's more than likely not these days of lies and corruption.

        2 things;

        1 Don't eat sugar.

        2 Do you really think food prep workers wash their hands?

        Yeah, that's why I make everything myself.

                      Well, after watching this video, I feel lucky because I rarely buy sth like that or eat outside. Nowadays, even food in restaurants is dangerous to eat. Money is the only thing many pp care

                                I have worked for 32 years in the Grocery industry. Safeway/Sobeys. I have NOT seen this. The MOVEMENT of material is the $$$ and provides BUYING POWER. It is odd, but it is not in the interests of the grocery industry to cause "lingering" of single products. It is economy of scale, for both PRICE and BUYING POWER. Yes fruit off of a tree will mold after a month, but over all this is a bit of fear mongering?

                                        Some restaurants reuse served foods.

                                        Unless you grow foods or make it yourself, you don't know what you're eating.

                                                              raw meat that is factory shrink wrapped will easily last at least 6 months in a freezer that is below zero. Remember if you get sick from any item dated the supermarket is liable unless there is a recall then the handler or manufacturer is held responsible. food poisoning pays very well and supermarkets pay fast. out of sight out of mind.

                                                                I am watching this video three years after publication. Is there an article, or plans to film a follow-up to this? I have had a few issues with consuming rotten egg sandwiches from a well known fast food restaurant, and I have bought food from grocery stores that have expired/gone mouldy within 24 hours of my purchase. I am concerned about the quality of foods being sold. I am sure I am not alone.

I might be wrong but my Step mom would never have allowed that but also she would sell meat like a pro! Where she never had to do this but with the regulations I highly doubt that the company would allow this! Also Galen Weston Jr. Personally hired my Step mom to work at his personal store! Because he wanted the best meat cutter in his store. His personal chef complimented my Step Mom multiply times for her amazing cuts of meat! That was five years ago so the company lost its one of the best meat cutters! So who knows what's going on and Galen can't manage ever frigging Loblaws store in Canada! Basically I trust Loblaws and all their sub grocery stores. But that doesnt mean I don't follow all the tips in this video. Best tip don't be lazy and reach for the back or bottom you will notice the best before dates are different!
