McDonald's suspends sales of nuggets in Hong Kong
July 25 , 2014
McDonald’s has suspended sale of chicken nuggets and a few other products in Hong Kong, according to media reports.
Chicken and pork were being imported by the fast food chain from Chinese firm Shanghai Husi Food, which allegedly supplied tainted meat. After media reports that Shanghai Husi was processing expired meat, China suspended the firm’s operations.
McDonald's has already removed nuggets from menus in its Japanese branches.
In a statement it said that all food sold at McDonald's restaurants “conform to the food safety standard under Hong Kong legal regulations.”
