“OMG I need to go shopping with you... I never find bargains like this,” added another.

Coles customers question huge buy: 'What's the used by date?'

However, some questioned whether the chicken products were safe to eat or had something wrong with it at such a low price.

“That cheap because of the used by date?” one person questioned.

“Never risk chicken, other meats are fine, but no to chicken,” added another.

But the successful shopper said the products had a used by date of the day of purchase or the day after.

She added that her family and guests “cooked and demolished” all the meat before it had expired.

“It’s common practice in Australia if it's no good for the public [to buy] they throw them out as they are liable,” she said.

She went on to say that the meal was cooked “perfectly” and that there was nothing wrong with her bargain buy.
