Receiving expired food as a gift

My sister owns a food distributorship. For Christmas, she starting wrapping expired cookies and passing them out as gifts. We didn't say anything, just threw them away. One year she took them out of the box and put them on plates and distributed them. The problem is, now we couldn't see how old they were. Also, I wondered if they were already opened and perhaps used as store samples. I would appreciate hearing how this should be handled.
