Outdated Baby Food, Formula Found On Store Shelves

Outdated baby formula on local grocery store shelves -- it's not supposed to be there, but our KIRO 7 Consumer investigators found it.
Baby food and baby formula are the only foods required by the FDA to have a "use by" date printed on the cans and jars.
When that date comes and goes, that food and formula is supposed to be pulled.
But we found outdated food and formula still on the shelves -- and still for sale.
We took our hidden camera inside local grocery stores.
We found that of the 29 grocery stores, drug stores and other retailers, nine had baby formula on the shelves that was past the "use-by" date.
We found a can of powdered formula with a use-by date read August 2006. But it was still for sale in early January when we bought it.
