The Chains

Chinese TV outlet CCTV has revealed that certain KFC suppliers in Shandong had been feeding chickens illegal drugs to fatten them. The undercover report, which took a year to carry out, also showed that the suppliers had been feeding the chickens non-stop and giving them "at least 18 kinds of antibiotics so that they would not become ill." In response to the news, both KFC and McDonald's have issued statements saying they will rectify the issue. [SCMP; Businessweek]
