11:17 pm
by overcharging in three quarters of the counties. that doesn't include the counties that didn't allow us access. the remaining counties have done no inspections at all. >> at one point the do they step in and do something? >> i can't comment on whether or not there is any current ftc action on safeway or any other company. >> reporter: neither can the california division of standards. but last year, they had a price verification survey. the grocery stores inspected were twice as likely to ere in their favor. by comparison. safeway stores were four times as likely to overcharge. that's according to county inspections conducted the same year. and scanner issues go far
11:18 pm
beyond california. safeway is in 20 states. inspections show higher failure rates in three other states, but california is the only state to take legal action and some have no inspections at all. >> the best way to protect yourself is to protect yourself. >> while they are responsible for protection at the national level. newman says federal investigations can take years so it's up to consumers to check their receipts. those in california should hold safeway to the court order. all though it does take dedication. ingly don't do that here. you know where it's at. >> reporter: we spent a total of 30 minutes in customer service in three stores to dietary agains for three. >> shouldn't i get it free? >> no. >> at the end of the day, only one store agreed. >> we can do that. >> reporter: now safeway says employees have since been retrained on the court ordered policy, but employees told us they were trained not to offer it for free unless a customer
