McDonald’s suspends sale of chicken nuggets and other items in Hong Kong

By: | at 08:37 AM | International Trade  

McDonald’s Corp said it has suspended sales of its chicken nuggets and other items in Hong Kong after it acknowledged it had imported products from Shanghai Husi Food, the company at the centre of a food safety scare in China.

McDonald’s said in a statement late it had imported certain products from Shanghai Husi between July last year to June this year, although no food items from the Shanghai supplier remained in stock.

Hong Kong said it had suspended, with immediate effect, all imports from the U.S.-owned Chinese supplier at the centre of the scare. (Reuters)
