Overhead costs and productivity costs would both be helped with better (and/or proper) inspection techniques. The food inspections are much more productive and money generating to a restaurant or establishment that passes them. This is an avenue that is not well looked upon by customers and critics when reports and reviews from poor inspections turn up. These are costly mistakes that can have large impacts on overall figures. It is more cost effective for all to employ new food inspection techniques and have businesses pass them.
McDonald's has had many not too kind headlines in recent years about the quality of their food.

Because of the recent scandals of tainted meat in Asian McDonald's restaurants, McDonald's should use new food inspection techniques in Asia markets. New food inspection techniques would help consumers feel safer about eating there and would help ensure the safety of their food. It would help consumers know that McDonald's cares about food safety and the safety of their customers.
