Serving Expired Food

A friend of mine has recently left a pre-and-after school care centre in the east. Apart from many other reasons that had caused my friend to resign, one of the main and intolerable reason was that expired food was offered to the children for tea break.

A left over birthday cake (that was kept for nine days) was given to the children as snack during tea break. While my friend had reminded the bosses to buy fresh snacks for the children and not to serve the cake, they insisted on doing so.

Did we not learn from the
Geylang Serai market mass food poisoning incident in April 2009? How could people be so unethical and irresponsible?

I like to know if you parents out there would offer cakes that are kept more than a week to your children. I had asked a sales person in a bakery shop how long can I keep a cake. She told me to consume within three days and must be kept in the freezer compartment of a fridge.

Unbelieveable. I won't eat it myself.

I would definitely not do that... The centre need to be checked and reported to Authority. Otherwise there will be more victims to such an act.. knowing and purposely serving expired 9 days old cake to small kids...
