Dear editor:
We are writing this letter to warn your readers that, when buying over-the-counter medication, to check the expiry date both on the outer packaging and on the container inside.
Recently, after purchasing and using a common cough medication for a period of time without it being effective, the date on the bottle was checked. It had an expiry date of 1993.
The date on the outer packaging was 1998.
This was brought to the attention of the pharmacy from which it was purchased, as well as the company who made it.
Two concerned consumers,
Judy Carter and
Sophie Basaraba
