expired goods - contents of canned or bottled goods are spoiled if the date on the label has already expired.

short weighing - the measure or volume is short of what it should be.

short-changing - your change is lacking so it is always safe to count your change before leaving.

adulterated goods-some vendors use cheap ingredients very much alike to the real ingredients

mislabeling-the label does not tell the real content of a can or bottle

false advertising-information about a product is not true because undesirable qualities are not revealed

created food shortage-the controls supply of goods such as rice which is hoarded in ware house
