Chinese Health Ministry Okays KFC

After a food scare that swept the nation off KFC last week, the Chinese Ministry of Health has come out with a clarification expected// to be met with sighs of relief, from the fast food chain.

There was public furor over reports of a chemical used in the filters to purify cooking oil. The chemical in question, magnesium silicate or talc, was reported as highly unhealthy by the Chinese media and this sparked off nation-wide wrath.

Responding to the protests, the Ministry of Health, conducted tests at six outlets of KFC.

The ministry has now, come out with the verdict that the chemical is of no danger to human health when consumed.

The present food scare follows one in 2005, where it was found that the company was using a possibly carcinogenic food dye, in some of its chicken products. Media and public wrath forced KFC to withdraw the food additive and Yum Brands- the parent fast food group, had to tender a public apology.

KFC has more than 1,700 restaurants in China and claims it is the largest and fastest-growing fast food chain in the country.
