BuzzFeed Japan falsely reports that it's legal in South Korea to serve leftovers

misc.
According to a report by Asian�E, BuzzFeed Japan�is spreading false information about South Korea's laws on leftover food.�

Recently, BuzzFeed Japan reported that it's legal in South Korea to re-serve leftover food in restaurants. However, the newly updated guideline by South Korea's Ministry of Food and Drug Safety�clearly states the reuse of ingredients is not permitted.�

Some of the criteria on the updated food guideline is as follows:

  • Sashimi, sushi, and kimbap may not be reused once out for display
  • Baked goods with creams such as cake may not be reused
  • Fried foods and japchae may not be reused
  • Displayed foods must be 20cm apart from one another
  • Foods that are displayed for over 2 hours must be discarded�


There is an exception. Uncooked foods/ingredients such as garlic, pepper, grapes, lettuce, bananas, peanuts, chocolate, etc. may be reused, only if uncooked and have followed the proper display guidelines.�

BuzzFeed Japan used only parts of the guideline (the foods listed in the�exception) for their article, and stated, "It's legal in South Korea to reuse ingredients."

The article gained over 32K retweets - making Japanese netizens express disgust against South Korea. Comments stated, "I'm never going to visit Korea," "I can't believe this is a cultural difference."�

Meanwhile, South Korean netizens are expressing anger against the false report for depicting Korea maliciously.�
