China health officials investigate KFC
KFC was investigated briefly by health officials in Shanghai who were worried about the fast food chain’s alleged high use of antibiotics.
This week Shanghai’s food safety authority said they found the level of antibiotics and steroids in KFC’s chicken was within official limits, but added that they found a suspicious level of an antiviral drug in one of the eight samples they tested.
The report comes a week after Chinese state broadcaster CCTV aired a report that said KFC chickens in China contained an excessive level of antibiotics. Shanghai officials looked into the chain’s food as part of a major push to regulate the city’s largely unregulated food service industry.
