Grocery store chain under federal investigation

Posted:
A grocery store chain is under federal investigation for its method of dispensing prescription drugs in Illinois.  


The Schnuck's grocery store chain has agreed to a $65,000 civil penalty after it was accused of filling prescriptions written by unauthorized practitioners in Illinois.   The prescriptions were written by mid-level vacationers, or those who were longer licensed under the Controlled Substances Act. 


A spokesman for the grocer said the company has enhanced it's training and improved its technology "to further limit such an incident in the future."
