Fast-food chains McDonald's, KFC and Pizza Hut have suspended orders from a Shanghai-based supplier after allegations that the company was using rotten meat to make fast-food products.
McDonald’s and Yum Brands, the owner of the KFC and Pizza Hut franchises, said they had stopped sourcing meat from supplier Shanghai Husi Food Company. Both companies said their restaurants in China could now face a shortage of certain products. McDonald’s apologised.
Yum identified its sausage and egg burger and a ’spicy roasted burger’ as being affected, while McDonald’s did not specify any products. KFC said it only used Husi’s produce in some branches in Fujian province, the franchise said in a Weibo post.
McDonald’s and Yum also said they were investigating the matter. The Chinese fast-food chain Dicos also said it has taken breakfast sandwiches from its menu in the wake of the report.
