The officials will meet with the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration this morning, the newspaper said.
An undercover Shanghai TV reporter posing as a worker at Shanghai Husi, the OSI unit involved in the alleged scandal, filmed colleagues combining expired meat with fresh cuts and then lying to McDonald’s inspectors, Chinese media reported earlier this month.
"To help rebuild the trust of customers and consumers, as well as to cooperate with the official investigatory process, we are compelled to withdraw all products manufactured by Shanghai Husi from the marketplace," OSI said in a statement on its Chinese website on Saturday. OSI is conducting a "thorough internal investigation" into possible failures by former and current senior management, the statement said.
McDonald’s is facing an investigation in Hong Kong linked to Shanghai Husi products, Hong Kong media have reported.
