I first caught wind of Cure CVS Now on the Facebooks, where a couple of my friends became concerned with expired baby products and condoms being locked up at local CVS stores in low income communities of color. I became involved with the group when I learned firsthand of the disgusting business practices being implemented by North America’s largest pharmacy, CVS. I wasted no time in visiting Anaheim’s 3 CVS stores and finding the same conditions in these stores as well. Here’ s a statement from Lucy Oh, The Cure CVS Now Campaign Organizer for our region.
Expired goods have been found on CVSâ€™s shelves in cities across the country â€“ you might even be able to find expired products at the CVS store near you. Researchers from Cure CVS have found expired infant formula, milk, eggs, and even over-the-counter medicines for sale at CVS stores. The company has been reprimanded numerous times for offenses like these, including citations from the Attorneys General of California and New York state, yet expired goods keep turning up for sale.

Over 50 people participated in a protest this last Thursday including myself and the Rag wrote an article on the event which you can check out here. Last but not least, thanks to all of you that turned out, especially the ones that came out with me, many of whom were sleep deprived or missed out on work.
