Following an earlier report that it was selling salty dry fish carrying live maggots, Chinese customers now accuse Carrefour of selling bread.
Local media report that a man surnamed Wu, a frequent customer of Beijing's Carrefour Shuangjing Store, said he had bought a bag of bread from the store, only to find that the bread smelled bad and had a surprising date of 2007 on the package. Usually bread has an expiration date of a few days or weeks after purchase.
A manager from Carrefour Shuangjing Store said that the wrong date on the bread may have been caused by a printer malfunction, but he did not say why the bread smelled bad.
A representative from Carrefour Shuangjing Store said they would like to double compensate Wu for the value of the bread, but Wu has refused the money.
