How Does the Industry Recover from China Meat Scandal?

21 August 2014

CHINA - Following the withdrawal of meat products supplied by Shanghai Husi Food Co. from global fast-food chains last month, Whole Hog Editor John Strak predicts how the scandal may affect the markets.

Shanghai food and drug authorities suspended chicken and beef products supplied by a local food company to McDonald and KFC outlets after an investigation revealed the re-labelling of meat beyond their shelf-life.

Local media in Shanghai reported that Shanghai Husi Food Co., Ltd reprocessed meat products that had outlived their shelf life and supplied them to global fast-food chains including McDonald, KFC and Pizza Hut.
