Oh dear, a little problem with Waitrose again. I thought I would try the prune juice (as one does) which might go down well after a pint of Newcastle Brown ale. The one litre carton delivered with a Waitrose online order on 26 August 2022 was stamped 'BBE AUG 23 2222'. How should that be interpreted - best before August 23 2022 or 2222? In other words, three days before the date of delivery or good for 200 years? One might take a risk with a cheese sandwich but prune juice could be trickier, eh? I completed the usual online complaint form and then this.
From Waitrose 27 August 2022
Good evening Mr. Gold,
Thanks for your email, although I am sorry to learn that there’s an issue with the date on Benefit Juice. I understand that this can be frustrating for you. We are keen to resolve this for you, please respond to this email providing a photo showing the date on the product.
