A scandal broke out last week in Hokkaido, Japan, concerning two food companies’ false claims that their products were made from 100% beef. The Asahi Shimbun reports:
The scandal over Meat Hope’s bogus “100-percent beef” products deepened Sunday when Hokkaido police started a criminal investigation that could lead to fraud charges against the companies involved…
The companies have already admitted falsely labeling their products. Meat Hope President Minoru Tanaka has acknowledged the practice started seven or eight years ago…
Former executives of Meat Hope have admitted that the company regularly bought large volumes of such meat.
The practice earned the company the nickname “the dumping ground” among industry insiders.
MEAT HOPE?!? Are you kidding me? Is this already taken as a band name?
