Suit settled; Rite Aid to pay state $1.3M

The state Attorney General’s office has settled with Rite Aid Corp. for $1.3 million after its investigation uncovered sales of expired products at stores throughout the state.
The expired products included over-the-counter drugs, baby formula, milk and eggs at 122 Rite Aid stores in New York, including 13 in the Rochester area, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said Thursday.
“Today, Rite Aid has demonstrated its commitment to addressing the serious health risks posed by expired products and to ensuring that consumers get the quality products they pay for,” Cuomo said in a statement.
Rite Aid has agreed to immediately pay a civil penalty of $1 million and an additional penalty of as much as $300,000 if it does not comply with the terms of the agreement over the next three years, Cuomo said.
Legal action against 148 CVS Caremark Inc. stores, including 15 stores in the Rochester area, continues, Cuomo said. Investigators as recently as Wednesday purchased expired medicines and baby formula from CVS.
