PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Shoppers in a Tesco store were somewhat taken aback to find milk containers security tagged today (Monday, November 21). The majority, though not all, of the milk 'bottles' in the Tesco Extra store in Pool, near Camborne, had individual plastic security tags attached. It's usual to see bottles of booze and more expensive items bearing the tags, which set off an alarm if anyone tries to leave the store with them still on. They are removed by cashiers. But it's thought this could be the first time that plastic containers of milk have been tagged. CornwallLive understands that the store has suffered from a spate of thefts of milk - especially of four-pint containers - presumably due at least in part to the cost of living crisis. This was the explanation given by a member of staff to a customer.

. A Tesco spokesperson said: "We do not have a policy to place security tags on fresh milk. A very small amount of milk was incorrectly tagged today in our Redruth Extra store and these tags have now been removed. We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused." There were reports in Manchester earlier this year that security tags had been wrapped around tins of formula milk powder in Tesco Express and Tesco Extra stores. Tesco declined to comment at the time. One woman told the Manchester Evening News: "I don't condone stealing, but this is heartbreaking. How have we got here in 2022 that people are so desperate they have to steal in order to feed their baby. Why the hell baby formula isn't free or on prescription for those on lower incomes or struggling financially is beyond me - it's hardly a choice whether we buy it or not, it's a baby's lifeline."
