I stopped by the 99 Cents Only store yesterday, because I was hungry and wanted to quickly grab a Snickers Charged, not because I think that “energy” candy bars are a good idea, but because I’d bought one there the previous day, because I wanted Snickers and that was the only Snickers they’d had. I had to dig a bit on the shelf to find one, but find I did.
But when the checkout clerk dragged it across the scanner, a big red box showed up on the register’s video display.
CLERK: I’m sorry, I can’t sell this to you. It’s been recalled.
ME: But I bought one here yesterday, and ate it. Am I gonna die?
CLERK: You’re okay – it wasn’t recalled yesterday.
