Chinese prosecutors charged 10 people connected with Shanghai Husi Food Co., a unit of U.S.-based OSI Group LLC, more than a year after authorities accused it of selling expired products to fast food companies in China.
Courts in Shanghai brought charges of selling substandard products against 10 people connected with two OSI meat-processing facilities in Shanghai and in China’s northern Hebei province, the Shanghai People’s Procuratorate said in a statement on its website late Wednesday in China. A processing manager for OSI China was among those charged.
Aurora, Ill.-based OSI, a top supplier to McDonald’s Corp. and other fast-food chains around the world, “will address the charges according to legal procedures,” a spokeswoman said. She added that “we have confidence in China’s legal system and believe that the judicial authority will come to a fair and reasonable judgment with full respect to the facts and laws.”
