A suspected meat scandal in China engulfed Starbucks and Burger King on Tuesday and spread to Japan.

Husi Food Co.'s food processing plant in Shanghai was sealed on Monday by the China Food and Drug Administration. The agency said Tuesday that inspectors also will look at its facilities and meat sources in five provinces in central, eastern and southern China.

Starbucks Corp. on Tuesday said it removed from its shelves sandwiches made with chicken that originated at Husi. Burger King Corp. said it stopped using hamburger it received from a supplier that used product from Husi. Pizza restaurant chain Papa John's International Inc. announced it stopped using meat from Husi. In Japan, McDonald's Corp. said it stopped selling McNuggets at more than 1,300 outlets that used chicken supplied by Husi.
