Unfortunately amazon isn't the only grocer selling bad food, one of the grocer's where I live constantly has old food on it's shelves.
However , they are financially in dire straights, Although that is no excuse, I got lunch meat one day that had an expiration date of 2 weeks prior
to the day I purchased it, and that was only one of the times it happened. Absolutely started checking dates before buying now.

That happened to me too recently, at Whole Foods of all places, though Amazon is not suffering financially. I don't understand how successful companies get away with this.

A lot of the safe guards protecting consumers have been reversed the past couple of years in many industries,
which is a shame, and will continue. Leaving consumers at risk, and businesses able to get away with this kind of
risky behavior. We are now back to a buyer beware system.
