Description

ABC PrimeTime Live "spent six months researching and investigating the grocery store chain, Food Lion... Former and current employees told (PrimeTime) that because they were under a great deal of pressure to meet profit quotas, they routinely put old or spoiled food back out for sale with a new expiration date... Food Lion was already facing numerous lawsuits and a Labor Department investigation involving off-the-clock work,... The company had dismissed those charges as a union conspiracy designed to destroy the company.... An ABC producer worked in two meat departments and an ABC associate producer worked in a deli. No one in the stores know who (they) were or that (they) had hidden cameras" Food Lion has strongly objected to the reporting techniques used to produce this story.
