Goose liver marked as three years past its prime? Yeah, that didn't sound too appetizing to a man near Cleveland when he found several packages marked that way in a local Wal-Mart. 

The man says he was buying goose liver for his dog when he came across the packages labeled "06/03/2013."

"June of 2013. ... I could not even believe it. I said, 'Did I see this right?' Then I looked at the next one, looked at the next one — all of them," the man told WEWS

A spokesperson from Wal-Mart told Newsy's partners at WEWS that it was a simple human error at the supplier, and the meat wasn't actually that old. Still, that Wal-Mart reportedly threw the meat away. 

Sugardale, the supplier of the meat, seconded that. They notified all affected stores to toss the meat, even though they believed the meat was still safe to eat.
