I just took this picture at my local grocery store and sent it to http://failblog.org --

Can you spot what's wrong? It could affect the health of you and your family.

Update: Hint: It's not what's there: it's what ISN'T there.

IRL, I know I could, and would, as I examine things like milk jugs rather closely. But my vision is not good enough to see details in the photo.

Wegman's prints the sell-by date on the back of the bottle, by the jug opening. So no, I can't tell what is not there. I can't see the entire bottle. An absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Not sure?

There doesn't appear to be a SELL BY date on ANY Of the milk..

I told the staff, they thought I was nuts, I showed them the evidence, they thanked me sincerely, but still thought I was nuts. Maybe I'm a highly-useful lunatic like Dick Van Dyke in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

price for skim.

If there is no price tag for the "reduced fat" milk, does that mean it is free? Or priceless?

The only thing I can tell at this resolution is the vitamin content of the different milks. I think that the best-by date is probably printed underneath the barcode, but it looks to me as though there is an additional vitamin in the skim and lowfat?
