PAKn'SAVE stores put beer, chips and fizzy drink in 'Good Health Week' promotion

Foodstuffs has admitted that some of its PAK'nSave stores acted inappropriately after chips, fizzy drinks, beer and two-minute noodles were included in a "Good Health Week" promotion.

The discounted products included Steinglager and Corona beer, Coca Cola, Deep Spring soft drink, two-minute noodles and large bags of corn chips.

Images were posted online of signage at the Porirua and Hamilton stores, and a Foodstuffs spokesperson confirmed they were part of a week-long promotion which is now complete.

"All stores were issued with a template for price signage which has, in these particular instances, not been used appropriately," the spokesperson said.

"We have spoken with the stores."
