BEIJING: Chinese government officials appear to be in the beginning stages of a nationwide shutdown of American fast food restaurants operating in China. Food safety officials are forbidding McDonald's, KFC and Pizza Hut to sell meat products.
According to China Radio International, "The Shanghai municipal government has suspended the operations of a food company suspected of supplying expired meat to McDonald and KFC outlets. The Shanghai Food and Drug Administration has ordered all meat products supplied by Shanghai Husi Foods to be taken off the shelf for safety concerns."
McDonalds and KFC could be the biggest losers in the meat ban, since they opened thousands upon thousands of fast food outlets all over China.
As reported by China Radio International, "Local media reports are alleging the company has reprocessed and supplied expired meat products to a number of fast-food chains, including McDonalds, KFC and Pizza Hut. Shanghai Husi is a member of US-based OSI Group. A company official says they are cooperating in the investigation."
The Shanghai meat supplier is owned and operated by a U.S. company.
