The chains terminated relationships with OSI China and globally.
The company said it has fully coordinated with a Chinese government investigation and followed authorities' guidance and instructions.
Fully reviewing the monitoring and management of its suppliers, the Chinese team of Yum has rolled out plans to discover and prevent such illegal wrong-doing.
The company will require suppliers to set up monitors in production and manufacturing. Its quality management staff will take measures to watch and review suppliers.
