TESCO APOLOGISE AND STATE ‘IT WAS A MISTAKE’ FOR CLASSING SANITARY PRODUCTS AS NON-ESSENTIAL.
A woman in Wales was left tamping after being refused the sanitary products by Tesco – who classed them as non essential products.
A Tesco spokesperson said: “Of course sanitary products are essential items and are available to customers in all of our stores, including those in Wales. The reply to this customer was sent by mistake and we’re very sorry for any confusion caused.”
Meanwhile, the Welsh Government is meeting retailers this afternoon to review the regulations and guidance to make sure it is being applied fairly and consistently. Health Minister Vaughan Gething said:
“If there are anomalies we will look at whether the guidance needs to be revised or strengthened to make it clear supermarkets have discretion to sell to people who are in genuine need.”
