I was at Wal-mart earlier and seen something that disturbed me.
When I worked retail each department had carts of returned
merchandise at the customer service desk to be returned to the
respected departments for whatever reason. Well today while
standing in line to get a money order I seen a cart loaded with
refrigerated items just sitting against the wall. There was milk,
juices and a few other things that need to go back to the
coolers and every employee just walked past it. I know it
probably wasn't their department but we are talking food items
and spoilage probability. I don't know how long it was sitting
there before I seen it. But with this extreme heat it is warmer in
the stores than usual. My question is this. Why wasn't this
merchandise taken back to the department promptly? It takes
very little time in this heat for things to spoil. Has anyone else
seen something like this at stores?

I was once told that refrigerated food items that make it to the register, even if unopened, can not be re-stocked and sold. I was told that because there is no way to tell if you shopped in the food section first and then walked around the rest of the store. Those items had to be disposed of, and I presume, that they were waiting to be inventoried so that they could calculate their waste costs.

I not accusing anyone here of restocking the items. I just found it disturbing that these items would just sit there. When I worked retail and we had items that were to be tossed we took them to the dumpster and as we tossed we recorded all information needed and got rid of it right away. If that is their policy of doing things fine. I was just saying.
