KFC Hit by Cancer-causing Sudan I
2005-8-1 9:29:25
KFC has pulled two items from its menu across China, after discovering cancer-causing Sudan I, in the sauce.

Kentucky Fried Chicken has pulled two items from its menu at more than 1,000 outlets across China, after discovering a cancer-causing food coloring, Sudan I, in the sauce.

The fried chicken chain's parent, Yum Brands Incorporation says it has removed "New Orleans" roast chicken wings and chicken hamburgers from its menu and destroyed all tainted products.

Sudan 1, an industrial dye used in petrol and shoe polish but banned from food because it heightens the risk of cancer, triggered a food scare across much of Europe last month, causing China to check for its presence in the country.

Yum says KFC has found a new sauce supplier and the New Orleans roast chicken wing is expected to be back on sale next week.
