Shanghai (AFP) - A scandal involving expired meat sold by a China unit of US food supplier OSI Group spread to Japan Tuesday, as McDonald's confirmed that the now shut factory provided Chicken McNuggets to its restaurants.
Shanghai authorities on Sunday shut an OSI plant -- a supplier to McDonald's and KFC in China -- for mixing out-of-date meat with fresh product, re-labelling expired goods and other quality problems following an investigative report by a local television station.
A Tokyo-based spokesman for McDonald's Japan told AFP the restaurant chain had sourced about 20 percent of its McNuggets from the Shanghai factory, and had suspended sales of its product since Monday.
Around 500 of McDonald's restaurants in Japan, a sixth of the total, had temporarily stopped selling McNuggets while the company obtained alternative supplies, he added....

China sells meat of their own people now?
And now China gets to process US chicken and sell it back to us. What could possibly go wrong?
The Chinese will poison themselves before long. I know middle-class Chinese in Beijing, Shanghai and Wuhan that refuse to bay any food product made in China. They will only shop at Carrefor or Wal-Mart
In Hong Kong supermarkets, they usually label where any produce is from. If something isn’t labeled with a country of origin, it’s from China. They farm in garbage dumps.
I stopped eating chicken nuggets and the spicy chicken patty.
Which pretty much ends my relationship with fast food.
Never ever buy any food products from China. Not for you and not for your pet. The Chinese adulterate everything
We were discussing this at dinner last night. A friend is going to China sightseeing soon because his girlfriend wanted to go. He is planning on subsisting on high end made in USA protein bars while there.
A good idea. He should probably only drink bottled water too.
Rule one when eating out - never eat at fast food or chain restaurants . You never know WHERE the # food # comes from or WHO is working in the kitchen .
Good for you. A giant step in the right direction.
Think Soylent Green
Isn’t all meat expired? I’d hate to chomp on meat that wasn’t, it could put up quite a fuss.
You know, going forward the problem is going to be that Chinese-processed chicken could be in any American produced product that purports to contain chicken, canned or frozen.
I won’t feed my pets food not made in the United States, and I have noticed companies are beginning to distinguish themselves by announcing their products are sourced and made in America. Hopefully, people-food companies will follow suit.
