Description

Radio-Canada's investigation brought to light an illegal practice that had been going on for years and that the agrifood industry was determined to keep under wraps: the systematic altering of packaging dates on meat sold in grocery stores to make consumers believe it was fresher than it actually was. Each morning, store butchers were taking packaged meats from the shelves and relabeling them with a later packaging date.
