The grocery store, Safeway, is being sued by customers who claim that they were not informed of food recalls by the company after they purchased items that were being recalled for salmonella.
Customers of the chain have club cards, which allow them to receive special discounts. It also allows the store to track their purchases, and, because of this, two customers are arguing that the company is obligated to inform consumers if they have purchased any items that have been recalled. Another grocery chain, Costco, has already put this idea into practice.
A new law for food safety will make all grocery stores tell consumers if an item has been recalled.
