American fast food, once a refuge amid China’s food scandals, is joining the ranks of the disgraced.

曾一度成为中国饮食安全丑闻的避风港的美式快餐,如今也加入了不光彩的队伍。

Early this week, McDonald’s locations across Beijing, Shanghai and the country were only offering fish burgers after the Chinese subsidiary of OSI, the McDonald’s and KFC-parent Yum! Brands supplier based in Illinois, said it would recall all meat products made at its Shanghai subsidiary.

这周一开始,麦当劳在北京、上海和整个国家的分店都只供应鱼肉汉堡,此前麦当劳与肯德基母公司百胜集团的中国供应商,位于伊利诺斯州的福喜公司,其中国分公司发表声明称将召回所有在上海子公司生产的肉类产品

The situation has been snowballing since last week, when a local Chinese TV report showed employees using rotten or expired products for ground meat. Authorities shut down the plant and Shanghai police detained five employees.

自从上周一个中国的地方卫视报道了福喜员工用腐烂或者过期的产品制作碎肉,这个情况像滚雪球似的放大。政府关闭了生产车间,上海警方扣留了五个公司相关负责人。

This is the second scandal in as many years to hit KFC in China, and insiders are seriously asking whether its reputation has been irreparably hurt. McDonald’s, meanwhile, was a standard bearer for food safety in China and its meat supplier OSI was considered one of the world’s best.

这是多年来肯德基在中国发生的第二次丑闻,业内人士非常关注其名誉是否遭受了不可恢复的重创。同时,麦当劳也是中国食品安全的倡导者,其肉类供应商福喜集团公认是世界最好的集团之一。

“As a global supplier of protein, [OSI] claimed to have higher standards,” said Richard Brubaker, founder of consultancy Collective Responsibility and an adjunct professor of sustainability at the China-Europe International Business School in Shanghai. “They weren’t proven to be any better.”

理查德•布鲁贝克,Collective Responsibility咨询公司的创始人,上海中欧国际工商学院的可持续发展兼职教授表示:作为蛋白质的国际供应商,福喜集团曾声明会采用更高的标准,但事实证明他们并没有比其他供应商做的好。

The blame for the latest food scandal in China lies squarely on McDonald’s and the rest of the American brands. When suppliers like OSI’s Shanghai subsidiary skirt the rules, American companies are supposed to catch the problem and fix it because they know China’s regulators can’t keep up.

最近在中国的食品丑闻罪责直指麦当劳以及美国的其他品牌。当福喜上海子公司之类的供应商躲避监管规则时,美国公司应当抓住问题并修正,因为他们知道中国的监管部门无法了解实情。
