Unbeknownst to customers, when the “wild” salmon appeared on the table it was a farmed Atlantic variety, according to food inspection documents obtained by the Star. The “organic” granola was boxed Quaker Harvest Crunch and the “homemade” dressing was bought from Renée’s Gourmet. The promised Japanese beef, a rare, well-marbled delicacy that reportedly can fetch around $200 a strip, was really regular skirt steak from a lesser breed of cow.

How often do you think this kind of thing happens?

i think it's ok to lie about something like a dressing being home made, but everything else seems out of order.

If any place needs a bunch of adjectives and fancy place names on their menu then I'm sure they do some fiddling.

You'd have to be a complete idiot not to notice the difference.

Having said that I once stood in line at Lidl's behind a guy buying 10 bags of frozen potato wedges. He was still wearing his Dominos Pizza uniform and name badge. Gerd jerb.

what if you force your migrant workers to live at the factory it's produced
what if you let the mice who infest your product help out, then it would be homemade, the mice's home at least?

In the Netherlands McDonalds serves there hamburgers with 100% beef. "100% beef" is actual the name of the company that produces the beef paddies which in turn only have about 40% beef in them. Still legal though

If you want real wild salmon the flesh needs to be almost completely red, not orange. It's really beautiful and delicious, less fatty.

Urban Myth.
Completely untrue.

I've seen places sell Kobe beef burgers, and I'm sure that's not easy to tell the difference to regular beef mince with a bunch of added fat.
>>

Yes but even the most expensive skirt steak will have the signature chewiness and graining
>>
>>7274006

But the restaurant in the article was selling whole steaks of the stuff. You'd have to be a fucking moron to not notice "hmm this doesn't seem any different from regular beef"

In America at least, it's always called "Kobe-style beef" or something like that. It's actually illegal to import true Kobe beef, because the process is considered animal cruelty under US law.

it's actually not, do your research

Completely untrue. Also
>paddies

I worked in a pub once. The ham was bought from a local butcher. I'd go to the butcher in the morning to collect the meat, and watch them slice the ham from the bone. It was on the menu and 'ham, carved from the bone...'. The food inspector said it was a false definition since we didnt carve it ourselves.

It happens in most restaurants, according to that new show, "Adam Ruins Everything."
>>
>>7273993
They have little tricks to turn grey, farm raised into looking just like it came out of an Alaskan river.
>>
I bet this happens more often than not.
>>
>>7273933
Most restaurants are not honest about their ingredients or their cooking methods. "Fresh" food my ass 90% of them are not fresh at all. Same with distributors and producers where fish is mislabeled constantly.
