BEIJING (AP) — McDonald's and KFC in China say they have stopped using meat from a supplier in Shanghai while authorities investigate a report it sold expired beef and chicken.

The report by a Shanghai television station that Shanghai Husi Food Co., Ltd. reprocessed and sold old meat adds to a string of food safety scares in China.

The official Xinhua News Agency said authorities suspended Husi's operations and ordered its products recalled while they investigate the report.

McDonald's Corp. and Yum Brands Inc., which owns KFC and Pizza Hut, said they immediately stopped using Husi's products and would conduct their own investigations.
