From the Toronto Star:
Clean out medicine cabinet
The recent discovery of a tube of antibiotic cream from 1955 in the Abbotsford, B.C., home of a retired nurse prompts the question: Just what is hiding in Canada's medicine cabinets?

While most homes aren't harbouring decades-old medications, it's not uncommon for these items to take up shelf space well past their expiry dates.

And those not accustomed to taking stock of their supplies could — at the very least — be left with medicines reduced to the status of a placebo.
