    McDonald’s Corp. and Yum Brands Inc., which owns KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut, have reportedly been purchasing expired meat from their Chinese supplier. An investigative report by a Shanghai television news station revealed that Husi Food Co. repackaged stale beef and chicken and slapped new—and inaccurate—expiration dates on it. Like the fast-food chains it reportedly sells expired meat to, Husi is owned by Americans: OSI Group of Aurora, Illinois. China’s state news agency said Husi’s operations had been suspended by authorities, and McDonald’s and Yum each said they would conduct investigations. China has suffered a number of food health scares that have damaged public trust, but American chains were usually considered safer than their Chinese counterparts. A woman at a largely empty Shanghai McDonald’s said, “I am worried about my health. I will try to avoid it, at least for a while. I am pretty disappointed in this brand.”
