(NEW YORK POST) The latest food scandal in China is spreading fast, dragging in US coffee chain Starbucks, Burger King Worldwide Inc. and others, as well as McDonald’s products as far away as Japan.

McDonald’s Corp. and KFC’s parent, Yum Brands Inc., apologized to Chinese customers on Monday after it emerged that Shanghai Husi Food Co. Ltd., a unit of US-based OSI Group LLC, had supplied expired meat to the two chains.

On Tuesday, Starbucks said some of its cafes previously sold products containing chicken originally sourced from Shanghai Husi, a firm that was shut down on Sunday by local regulators after a TV report showed staff using expired meat and picking up meat from the floor to add to the mix.
