A factory in Shanghai has been shut down for selling out-of-date meat to restaurants across China, including McDonald's, Starbucks, Burger King and KFC.

According to Xinhua, the state-owned news agency, authorities in Shanghai have ordered the suspension of operations at Shanghai Husi Food Co.

As the BBC's Beijing Correspondent Martin Patience reports, it's the latest in a series of food scares in the country.
