Yum, McDonald’s Apologize In Food Supplier Safety Scare, – U.S. fast food chains McDonald’s Corp and KFC-parent Yum Brands Inc apologized to Chinese consumers on Monday and said they will stop using a Shanghai meat supplier after Chinese regulators shut the firm down over food safety concerns.

A watchdog closed a Chinese branch of privately held U.S.-based food supplier OSI Group LLC and seized meat products suspected of being beyond their expiration date, according to a statement on Monday from the Shanghai Municipal Food and Drug Administration. OSI products were sold to clients including Yum’s KFC and Pizza Hut chains and McDonald’s.

An official at Aurora, Illinois-based OSI in China said the firm was working with local government to investigate the matter, but declined to comment further. OSI, which has over 50 manufacturing facilities worldwide and had revenue of over $5 billion in 2012, has been supplying McDonald’s in China since 1992 and Yum since 2008, according to its website.
