Family Finds Expired Baby Food at the Portland Walmart Top Story Fri, 19 Dec 2014 5:40:05 PM Caroline Flores Family Finds Expired Baby Food at the Portland Walmart

PORTLAND - A Portland family contacted KRIS 6 News after learning the baby food they bought at the Walmart in Portland was expired.

Normally when you buy food from the store, you buy it with the expectation that it's fresh. One Portland family had that expectation when buying an Ella's Kitchen brand baby food at the Walmart in Portland. The mother tells us she was feeding her 8 month old baby boy Saturday, when she noticed the expiration date on her son's food was September 2014.

In a Facebook post to Walmart, the family says "it was 3 months expired!! We looked and all of them were 3 and 4 months expired."

When that family returned that expired baby food to the Portland Walmart, they say that the manager had to no empathy or remorse for the situation. But the manager did refund them their money and took about 20-30 of the expired pouches off the shelves.

Friday we went in the Portland Walmart to see if all the expired baby food pouches were taken off the shelf, and we found one that was still out. While doctors say expired baby food isn't good, it's also not something to get too worry about.

"When it comes to sealed and canned foods, they rarely get really really expired. You know, in a fact in a way that a fungus and bacteria growing in them," said Pediatrician Dr. Senait Adebo.

As for the Walmart allowing expired baby food being sold, a Walmart spokeswoman tells us they are supposed to check for expired item every month.

"We spoke to our management team. Our management team has covered it with the associates in the store to help ensure this doesn't happen again," said Walmart Spokeswoman Erin Hofmann.

Hofmann says they've gotten rid of all the expired baby food. As for the family who bought the expired baby food, Hofmann says in addition of refunding their money Walmart also gave them a $50 gift card.

Firefighter Guilty Of Family Violence Top Story Fri, 19 Dec 2014 3:24:12 PM Bart Bedsole - Firefighter Guilty Of Family Violence

CORPUS CHRISTI - A former firefighter was found guilty of Continuous Family Violence for assaulting his former wife at least two times in 2013.

Elliot McAllister was arrested in August of 2013. The victim testified Friday that he repeatedly slapped and punched her at their home on August 13.

She also said he cut her on the arm with a razor.

Most of the incident was videotaped by Elliot McAllister. His attorneys argued that the assault was part of a consentual sex act between the two.

Attorney Ron Barroso said at the most, it was a misdemeanor assault, and there was very little evidence at all of the previous assault in July.

But 319th District Court Judge David Stith was convinced that both incidents occurred, and found McAllister guilty.

Several months after his arrest, a psycholigist ruled that McAllister was not mentally competent to stand trial, and the trial was postponed.

It was rescheduled after a later ruling found him to be competent.

The punishment phase of the trial will be held at a later date.

McAllister faces anywhere from probation to 10 years in prison.

Barroso hopes McAllister will be able to avoid prison, so he can seek help for his psychological problems.

The first was where the shooting happened at Carroll Lane and SPID, the second was at Wilkinson Dr. and SPID where the victim's body was left and third, where the driver of the Cadillac was pulled over just near Kostoyrz Elementary.
