Market Selling Expired Wal-Mart Food In Beijing

According to, a supermarket in Xiba Village of Beijing's Chaoyang District is selling expired food with Wal-Mart tags.

A staff representative from the Chinese market says in the report that it has been selling expired food, including yogurt, meat and vegetables, for more than two years. Since the price is cheaper than at Wal-Mart, it has reportedly done good business.

Chinese media reports that the expired food that the supermarket sells come from Wal-Mart Zhichun Road Store, but Huang Li, a representative from Wal-Mart's public relations department in China, says that Wal-Mart's store at Zhichun Road has signed with and consigned a company called Beijing Chunqiu Storage and Transportation Company to destroy its expired food. Therefore they say they have never hear of their expired goods being sold by other supermarkets.

Huang says that as a global company, Wal-Mart has attached great importance to the disposal of its expired food and they have never allowed their expired food to flow into other markets. Huang says if it proves to be the cooperating company that has given the goods to the illegal supermarket, they will severely punish the company, and they will set up a special team to investigate.
