CVS has agreed to pay Pennsylvania $250,000 to settle consumer complaints that it sold expired food and over-the-counter drugs. The chain must also give $2 coupons to any consumer finding out-of-date merchandise on store shelves.

The settlement announced today by state Attorney General Tom Corbett is the latest in a string of cases nationwide that includes New York, California and Connecticut. In Pennsylvania, consumers had complained about expired over-the-counter drugs, infant formula, baby food, dairy products and other food.
