Reducing food waste is a noble goal for any restaurant, but it’s a terrible idea to go too far, like one Beijing restaurant that was recently caught reusing customers’ leftover food in dishes for other guests.

According to Shanghaiist, Han Li Xuan Barbecued Meat Market in Beijing, part of a Korean barbecue chain with an all-you-can-eat buffet,  was caught in an illicit food-recycling program by a pair of intrepid undercover reporters who filmed employees collecting meat from customers’ trays and re-serving it to unwitting guests.

Acting on tips from restaurant employees, two reporters from Beijing News reportedly applied for jobs at the restaurant. Both were hired after an interview that allegedly lasted less than three minutes, and were quickly brought into the food-mishandling fold.

On their first day, the reporters noticed that “after the lunch rush, more than 10 trays were filled with food remains from other customers, including fish, lunch meat, prawns, beef and watermelon slices,” Shanghaiist’s Jennifer Hui wrote. The food was tidied up and re-plated in the kitchen, then served again to the next crowd of customers.

“All these food remains and uncooked food need to be sent to the back kitchen and taken out from the front kitchen. Then, no one suspects anything,” one employee allegedly told one of the undercover reporters.

RE: Beijing restaurant reuses leftover food

USA: The year began with food safety scandal in the United States, as peanut products were linked to a deadly salmonella outbreak across 46 states.


As the outbreak spread, the list of affected products grew, leading to the
largest product recall in American history – more than 3,000 foods from hundreds
of companies.


But there was much more to the story than the outbreak itself: The situation sparked intense debate about the state of the US food safety system.


About 76m Americans suffer from foodborne illness each year, 300,000 are hospitalized and 5,000 die. In 2009, a rash of regulation was introduced in an effort to reduce these statistics, proposing more inspections for manufacturers
and tougher enforcement.

People got sick, but the food was RECALLED by the factory.
Not the case in CHINESE SH!TTY Restaurants who could RE-SERVE food over and over without anyone knowing how many time it has been re-plated.
Big Difference.

You tried to use one bad restaurant to blacken the whole catering in China. It is like that a Chinese committed a crime and you try to convict all Chinese people are criminals. Aren't you ridicuous?

Please look up the data of the USA, how many people were hopitalized each year due to food safety there, and share us the story, Mr Envoy of China-bashers.

In another post, your claimed Chinese vegetable and fruits are poisonous. Please tell us that you eat healhy food, i.e. peanut exported from the USA and never go to any restaurants in China. Are you kidding us?

Insetad you should be more concerned about the estimated 10% of Chinese restaurants that allegedly use gutter oil.
