The Guardian pharmacy outlet at the Lot One shopping centre in Chua Chu Kang has drawn criticism online for purportedly carrying expired bottles of sleeping pills.

Facebook user Jasmine Ong shared online that she purchased a bottle of Blackmore’s sleep sound formula – a type of sleeping aid pills – on 20 June 2019. She followed the instructions and took the pill accordingly but suffered an allergic reaction that lasted 5 days.

On 23 June, Ms Ong went to the doctor and paid S$53 dollars for allergy medication and ointments. It was then that she realised that the bottle of sleeping pills she had purchased had expired on 26 April 2019.

Ms Ong returned to the Guardian outlet a week later and apparently saw more expired bottles with the same expiry date on the shelf. When she asked the staff about this, they simply told her that they will offer her an exchange for the bottle she had purchased.

Upset, Ms Ong wrote: “The bottle been on the shelves for god knows how long and how many other consumers has taken it? This is definitely an act of negligence.”

The Independent has contacted Guardian pharmacy for comment and will update this story once we receive a response.
