Yum Brands reports sales on the rebound in China

Yum Brands says sales are on the rebound in China as KFC recovers from a supplier controversy. Last year, China's national telivision channel reported that some chicken supplier were using excessive levels of antibiotics in their poultry. China's food safety authority investigated, but no charges were brought. Yum Brands says sales at KFC stores open at least a year were up five percent, while Pizza Hut sales fell three percent.
