The FCCC says their enforcement teams were on the ground conducting inspections to ensure that traders were not engaging in unethical business activities.

It is urging consumers to continue being cautious when taking advantage of deals and specials by always checking the expiry dates of the items before making any purchase and ensuring that they are not overcharged for a price-controlled item by thoroughly checking their receipts before leaving supermarkets.
