KFC's China supplier denies toxic chicken claims


08:54, November 28, 2012

TAIYUAN, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese supplier to popular U.S. fast food chain KFC on Tuesday denied reports claiming that its chickens are fed feedstuff laced with huge amounts of toxic additives that could "kill flies."

The Suhai Group, based in north China's Shanxi Province, said in a statement that its chicken meat "does not have problems" and samples are being sent to the provincial quarantine agency for testing.

Media reports emerged last week alleging that Suhai Group adds toxic industrial chemicals to feedstuff to make chickens grow faster -- 45 days for a chick to grow big enough for slaughter. Reports claimed that the feedstuff Suhai prepared was so toxic that it could even kill flies.

Suhai countered that its production lines have passed the government's annual quality checks, and 45 days is a normal growth cycle for a chicken.
