Walgreens has agreed to pay more than $2 million to three Northern California counties to settle a lawsuit alleging the Deerfield, Ill.-based company was selling expired baby food, infant formula and over-the counter drugs.
Retail The San Mateo County District AG:
The company, which did not admit liability, also agreed to have employees remove expired items from the shelves and post signs asking customers to check expirations dates.
Investigators also found the chain with more than 600 stores in California charged customers more than the posted price for items.
The company says in a statement it will continue working with California authorities. ■
