Expired food sold on Japanese railway
by UPI

TOKYO - A Japanese railway caterer has admitted selling thousands of packaged food items after their "sell-by" date.

JR-Central Passenger Co., a caterer for Central Japan Railway Co., said it sold about 15,900 box lunches, sandwiches and other food items at train stations linking Tokyo to Osaka and on bullet trains, after the items' expiration times were deliberately extended by several hours, Kyodo News Agency reported.

Compay officials said at a news conference there had been no reports of sickness from consumers so far from the items, which were sold Thursday.

The catering company said its customer service center received an anonymous call about the matter and an internal audit confirmed the products sold that day bore false expiration data.
