Heard at the marketplace (mandu scandal)
|Ohmynews has a nice little piece about marketplace talk and practices in connection with the recent mandu scandal, in which sweetened horse radish (tanmuji) originally thrown away was used in making mandu. (Ordinary and sweetened radish from garbage was cleaned and dried and sold to food processing companies.)|
"You can't eat this, it's for restaurant keepers."
"This sweet potato has no taste. They'll do something of it in a Chinese restaurant."
"These potatoes are for businesses. I won't sell them to you. I'll give you good ones."
In the mandu scandal, the man who is said to be the main culprit, Mr Yi (Lee) of Ûttûm Sikp'um ("First-class Foods") is on the run. He was interrogated by the police but not arrested, and now he's evading the law with the help of his telecommunication skills, using his collection of cell phones and making calls mainly from payphones.
Below is the time chart of Ûttûm Sikp'um sales and authorities' measures against the company.
I never said anything even though I saw vegetable oil past its date being used in I won't say what.
