SHANGHAI, China – Shanghai police took five people into custody for their involvement in a food safety scandal at a local meat-processing plant, according to a Reuters report.

The Shanghai Food and Drug Administration shuttered a meat-processing plant run by Shanghai HUSI Food Co. Ltd. after a television report showed workers picking up meat from the plant floor and mixing fresh meat with expired meat. The plant is a local subsidiary of Aurora, Ill.-based OSI Group LLC.

The head of HUSI Food was among those detained, along with the plant's quality manager, according to a statement from the police. No other details were available.
