Restaurants Falsely Labeling Scandals Spark Customer Outrage In Japan

TOKYO, JAPAN - NOVEMBER 05: (CHINA OUT, SOUTH KOREA OUT) A sign offers an apology for using black tiger shrimp for a dish labeled Japanese tiger prawn at the food section of Takashimaya department store's Nihonbashi outlet on November 5, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan. The latest menu mislabeling scandal surfaced late last month, when Hankyu Hanshin Hotels Co. announced that 47 food items served at its hotels, became a nationwide growing scandal that has sparked consumer outrage and prompted government calls for industry-wide investigations. Japan has no legislation stipulating clear standards for menu displays at restaurants, meaning that the companies did not necessarily violate the law. (Photo by The Asahi Shimbun via Getty Images)
