CVS in court (again) for (even more) expired drugs, milk, eggs, and formula


On Monday, Connecticut became the latest state to cite CVS (CVS) drugstores for selling expired products. Richard Blumenthal, the state's attorney general, filed a lawsuit against CVS, revealing that investigations his office conducted over the past year and a half determined that 44% of inspected stores sold expired over-the-counter drugs, infant formula, energy drinks, milk, eggs, and yogurt.

The suit puts Connecticut in a small fraternity of states battling the huge chain. New York settled with CVS last month for $875,000. California and Nevada also took CVS to task, but California doesn't outlaw selling expired drugs, and Nevada imposed a laughable wrist-slap of a fine, for $5,000.
