Breeze FM has unearthed a scam where some traders in Chipata are selling expired goods to unsuspecting customers.
A check by Breeze News found that goods, which expired three weeks ago that include soft drinks like Tangy Cola were still being sold.
A further check revealed that dairy products like Bonita Milk, which are supposed to expire next week, are still on the shelves.
A team of inspectors from Chipata City Council who inspected a room where the goods are being stocked behind the shop, found large quantities of goods, which are about to expire.
The shop owners and workers at the shop, admitted wrong doing but insisted that it was not intentional because they receive high consignments of goods.
And Chipata City Council Public Relations Officer, Taonga Kaonga declined to comment on the matter until she receives a report from the inspection team.
