Supplier for McDonald’s and KFC Exposed Using Chicken and Beef That Has Expired and Gone Bad

NetEase Finance July 20 report — Dragon TV today [July 20] broadcasted a report claiming that over two months, an undercover journalist discovered widespread use of meat sources that have expired and gone bad at Shanghai Fuxi [“Husi”] Food Products Limited Company, the meat supplier for well-known international fast food chains such as McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken [KFC], and Pizza Hut.

This company was exposed using such methods as recooking expired food products and changing expiry dates to process expired meat products and then sell the chicken nuggets, steaks, hamburger patties, etc. to the majority of fast food chains such as KFC, McDonald, and Pizza Hut. When the reporter questioned this, the workers even cheerfully said: “People won’t die from eating expired food.”

Reporter’s investigation findings:

2014 June 18, 18 tons of frozen chicken skin and chicken breast meat expired for half a month were mixed into the raw materials and made into golden “McNuggets”. The reporter also says these expired chicken meat sources are prioritized for use in China. Additionally, KFC’s smoked meat patty also used raw materials that were expired for nearly a month.


Moreover, the journalist also found that the small, frozen, marinated beef steaks supplied to Yum Brands were over 7 months expired but still being used, the steaks having already become moldy and green. 2014 June 11 and 12, this company used 10 tons of expired semi-finished product to make mini-steaks. The material used should have all be discarded as garbage. However, after processing, the “best used before” date was reprinted and extended for a year.

The report states the company even kept internal and external accounting books in order to deal with inspections, to cover up the real production dates.

A reporter has learned that at present, the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration department has already launched an investigation into Shanghai Fuxi Food Products Limited Company exposed by the media.

Now already part of KFC’s luxurious lunch meal.

An orange tree to the south of the Huaihe River is an orange tree, but an orange tree to the north is a hedge thorn, their leaves similar, but the flavor of their fruits different. [Note: This is quoted from The Spring and Autumn Annals of Minister Yan Ying]

Time to pay fees! [Probably referring to the company needing to pay bribes to avoid negative media reporting].

Sure enough, when in Rome, doing as the Romans do.

Chinese people’s bodies are already immune to all poisons/toxins!

Suddenly reminded of KFC’s commercial. [Note: Not long ago, KFC had aired a television commercial featuring a company official expressing KFC’s commitment to food safety and quality.]

Actually, it’s not that I look down on Chinese people, but there probably aren’t many nationalities in the world who can compete with the speed our countrymen heal wounds and forget pain [forget past lessons]! As a result, this reporter has spent so much time and energy thinking of the ordinary common people, but just how many Chinese people will stop eating the unhealthy food of the West as a result of this?

Are you a stupid cunt? Isn’t this choosing to not hate those who are poisoning you to death and instead hating those who didn’t know and didn’t stop in time?

McDonald’s and KFC are the only places in China where you can buy nothing but still sit in to enjoy air conditioning. You can also bring your own food and drink and freely consume them inside. Passersby can also use their restrooms as they please. Think, can this be done in our own [Chinese] restaurants?

网易云南省昆明市网友 ip:222.221.*.* (responding to above)

Wang Fang sang a red song about resisting America during a Spring Festival Gala, and was subjected to all sorts of unfair attacks [criticism]. Liu Jialing [Carina Lau] took a photo in front of Tiananmen, and subjected to all sorts of personal attacks. Wen Zhaolun [Deric Wan] said he is a person with a homeland after Hong Kong was returned, and was flamed repeatedly. Whenever there is news involving the foreign, even if it is negative, there is always a bunch of people licking [ass] like dogs…

Remember when CCTV criticized Apple customer service for being discriminatory and a bunch of people said it was stupid? That it [negatively] affected the honor of their Apple? But they forget that Apple’s customer service improved and that it was Chinese consumers who benefited. When Starbucks was criticized for inflated prices, a bunch of people asked why real estate companies weren’t being exposed, and another bunch of people said it was none of your business, that you can only expose Chinese food and restaurant companies, that you can only criticize ineffective oversight/supervision, but you cannot criticize our foreigners, because we just love eating foreign garbage, because we just love using foreigners’ free restrooms…

In response to these duplicitous ninnies, I only have one word:

“Low!” [This word is difficult to translate. In this context, it refers to a person who voluntarily and happily debases oneself.]


Even if there was shit in there, there would be people who would still eat it. When the brand is too big and has been around for too long, it is already very difficult to damage it.

You mean even if dog shit is made into KFC, the post-’90s generation will still enjoy it…
