Chicken off menu at McDonald's in Hong Kong after expired meat scandal at Chinese supplier

HONG KONG - McDonald's restaurants in Hong Kong have taken chicken nuggets and chicken burgers off the menu after a mainland Chinese supplier was accused of selling expired meat.

The fast food chain said late Thursday that it "suspended relevant food ingredients" at Hong Kong outlets in light of the scandal surrounding Shanghai Husi Food Co.

Chinese authorities detained five Husi employees after a TV station reported last weekend that the company repackaged and sold meat past its use-by date.

McDonald's in Hong Kong said it used chicken from a Husi factory, but it wasn't the Shanghai factory at the centre of the initial allegations against the company.

The government of the semiautonomous Chinese territory said that imports of Husi products would be suspended as the investigation continued.
