On the surface, this story of a Japanese McDonald’s using expired products in salads is a simple story. It has some interesting details, though.  

[Japan’s McDonald’s Holdings Chief Executive Eiko Harada] said the salads did not pose a health risk or violate the law, but broke McDonald’s policy of selling food within 12 hours of preparation. The staff falsified the labels because they thought dumping the food “was a waste,” Harada said.

Part of the vegetables which are left over after preparing the instruments go into the vegetable soup which is served to the audience after the concert. Part of the instruments and other remaining vegetables we give to the audience after the concert. And another part goes into the organic waste.  

Soup and a show, can’t beat that!
