: Food safety is comprimised. By management as well as crew. Because management are put under pressure to reduce food costs all the time out of date stock is used as well as dodgy stock. Examples I have witnessed include a food inspector who visited any pointed out that a stack of shake mix was ouit of date. The store manager put do not use tape on it but as soon as the inspector had gone he removed the tape and used the mix .

If that's the case in your store, then your store manager is an idiot.
If you guys are using out of date stock, then the fault lies with your managers. In all my years at BK I have never witnessed anyone using out of date stock. I don't know how McDonalds works, but in my store the manager orders food, we recieve it, the expiration is usually a few months (a couple weeks for dairy products). We practice first-in-first-out. Don't they rotate the stockin your store?? If your stuff is expiring then either your store manager orders too much, or more likely, all the managers are not making sure food is being rotated.
When we get our food if we notice that the expiration date is near and we don't think we will be able to use the product before it expires, we send it back.
Besides, the product usually expires way after you recieve it(months for frozen products and weeks for refrigerated stuff) so there is plenty of time to use it. If you keep practicing last-in-first-out the food will spoil.
