TOKYO, JAPAN - NOVEMBER 05: (CHINA OUT, SOUTH KOREA OUT) Takashimaya department store managing director Yutaka Masuyama (C) and other executives apologize after admitting to falsely labeling food products at their outlets during a news conference on November 5, 2013 in Tokyo, Japan. An internal investigation by Takashimaya officials found that a total of 62 menu items at 10 restaurants and prepared food shops in those six outlets had fake labels, such as a terrine using black tiger shrimp for a dish labeled 'Kurumaebi (Japanese tiger prawn)'. 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)
