Campaigners have handed out ‘stolen baby formula’ amid calls for supermarkets to slash prices of essential items.

This is Rigged claimed they had stole the items before handing them out to passers-by in Glasgow city centre on Sunday.

It comes after the group demands that supermarkets slash their prices of essential items – particularly baby products like formula.

Last month, the group handed out ‘stolen vegan sausage rolls and tea and coffee’ amid calls for action on food poverty.

In a statement released on social media, the group explained the actions by saying, “We are asking for the bare minimum: our inalienable human right to baseline food security; but we are also asking for dignity.

“No longer will we beg for scraps from the tables of greedy CEOs. No longer will we be at the mercy of corporations who price us out of eating on a whim, dependent on them to provide us with our foundational needs.

“No longer will we tolerate a criminally incompetent government that refuses to address the crisis of food insecurity in this country.”

Police Scotland have been contacted for comment.
