out of date food

My grandma has brought a few Creme Eggs that are out of date (best before end of July last year) from a shop. It's not the first time it's happened from the same place. What's the law on selling out of date food?

    They need to offer you a full and immediate refund or the shop are up shit creek.

    The law is on your side.

    Yep we bought some sweets today that were passed their best before date, but there was a sign saying so. It said they will decline in quality after a month or so.

    Half a year after the date is going to be pushing that on the quality side, and I would have thought a cream egg might have a "use by" but depends what it is made of.

    If it's a creme egg then knock the top off, and see what it smells like.

    You don't wanna be risking salmonella or anything nasty like that :(
